Thanks ladies. I know it's only been 3 days so I am crazy to think there won't be pain. It's just so sore at my knee and aches way down in to the bone. I know he had instruments going in at the knee cap. I had lazor surgery in the thigh all the way up and it does ache and burn. It's just so hard to be imobile when you use your legs all the time.
I picked up some oral drops at the healthfood store that are for injuries. You put them under your tongue. I am still afraid to apply anything on the stitches. I am trying to keep the area as sterile as I can. The doctor removes the stitches this thursday. I will ask him about things that I can apply. But I would think the things you all have mentioned would be good. Believe me, I don't want scars and I have 15 stitches all in different locations.
