Re: Inquiry re knee replacement healing time.
First, Lortab is hydrocodeine, probably similar to what you are taking, but a lesser dosage. Anti-inflammatory drugs make me sick, so I use ice. My physical therapist believes in heating the joint before exercise and icing the joint after exercise. It really works for me. You are really early in the recovery process. Most people I've talked to say that they began to feel much better at 6 months, and really well at one year. However, I have known women who recovered really fast, in about 3 months! So, don't give up. Keep exercising!
