I had a knee replacement and was pretty well recovered when I had a bad fall and hit both legs on rocks. Since then I have severe unremitting pain in both legs, especially the operative one. My doctor refuses to give me any medication for pain, though he has done so in the past. Is he doing the right thing medically?

Greetings,When did you have the fall? Is there any swelling? When did you consult doctor last? What medicine did you try?Regards.
I had the fall 2 1/2 weeks ago. There was swelling in the right (operative) knee. There is still some swelling in the right foot. The right leg and knee were xrayed, which showed nothing broken but some damage to the leg at the hospital ER. At first I had some Norco 10 mg, but I ran out the dr. would not perscribe anything else.
Thank you for the input.Sometimes Narco can be habit forming. So the doctor has not given you the prescription. Besides narco other pain medicines can be tried. Among otc antiinflammatory analgesics there can be ibuprofen (motrin, advil), naproxen (available as aleve) after food or Tylenol (acetaminophen) can be tried. You can try cold and hot compression alternately to check whether they help. If you have any query, please feel free to ask. It will be my privilege to assist you.Regards.
The expert did not help me and I don't believe another expert would either. I reject the answer.
If you have further query, you can ask. I will try to explain.
I don't have any more inquiries. I only had one and I'm not satified with the answer. Do not try to bill me $75. It won't work.
