Question Muscle spasms after TKR (total knee replacement)

How long does muscle spasms last post op total knee replacement. I had the TKR surgery on 12-14-2011 and the muscle spasms started getting bad after the staples were removed on 12-29-2011. Anyone has any suggestions on preventing the muscle spasms would be greatly appreciated. I have two more weeks of taking coumadin, so can't take calciculm since it contains vitamin k and would interfere with the coumadin. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
