So Im (finally) having knee surgery tomorrow.

I tore my ACL and Miniscus on Oct 4th. I was suppose to have surgery Dec 20th but sickness interfered. Then it got cancelled 2 more times due to illness (This cold and flu season have been brutal). Its now upon me, and Im still dodging sick people and totally stressed. Scared as hell too. Not so much of the surgery (altho, thats scary too), but the aftermath. Im not big on pain pills, and I never taken one. Hoping I can power thru it without taking drugs of the narcotic type.

I have an ice machine ready, and lots of PT schyeduled. Any other tips for recovery and pain management?

Do this EVERY night until you achieve full ROM.

Make no mistake about it you will be sore for a few weeks. Ice the knee to prevent swelling and sleep at night with an immobilizer on the knee to prevent inadvertant movement or putting your knee in a compromising position while you sleep. You will regret it if you don't.

Good luck!
Yes yes. This is how I acheived ROM during Pre-hab. Im totally prepared for that.I also have an ice machine that will hook up to me and run 24/7 if I want it to. Apparently this is key in pain managment.

I'm headed the same way in a few weeks. I've heard from several people that within 3-5 days of the surgery the pain was already less than before.

Had both knees reconstructed. Drink lots of water. Listen to your therapist. Know your limits. Don't overdo it.
