Discussions that mention morphine

Knee & Hip Problems board

Hi Sue, Sorry I have never had nerve block shots for either of my knee replacements. The first one was 3 years ago, the second one was a year ago and then 2 months ago I had the second one bottom end replaced because it was loose. The pain before the surgeries was really bad and I was on lots of morphine but now I take nothing. This knee bends to 115 degrees. I have to be careful and not weight bare yet but it’s coming along. I am looking forward to the day when I can walk like I used too. Is there nothing your doctor can do for you??? Has he taken x-rays to make sure it isn’t loose ??? My doctor aspirated my knee 2 times and had x-rays every month until he could see the lifting of the lower half. It still took a year before he would finally redo it. Good luck Vaerie-Jean :wave:
