Call your doctor and see if he can give you a stronger pain medication

I had my surgery July 1. It was very painful the first week. I stayed in bed the whole time...had a potty chair (both feet at once) and used a wheel chair. I put ice under both knees and on each foot for 2-3 weeks straight. To make a long story short. I am now fine. I can swim...walk with little pain etc. It gets a lot better really quickly, at least for me, if you just take it really easy and keep your feet up and iced all the time. Keep me posted.
