I am 1 day post op on my 2nd surg. This 1 to break up scar tissue after a total knee replacement which was very painful! My surg is a sadist! He injected my knee before anesthesia with a numbing agent! Unfotunately he hit scar tissue & could'nt advance the needle. At rhat point I started screaming & moving my knee. They told me to breathe & I couldnt. Finally he found the right spot & the pain was gone. I took a few deep breathes & anesthsia came in. & said he did'nt have to do that ! I agreed & I went off to surg where I was pain free Yes pain free for 9 blessed hours! I have much better flexion & extension! I remember telling my surg I did'nt think it was going to hurt that much after the injection. I have had 4 & only 2 inluding this 1 hurt like that! He said I knew it was going to hurt like that! Huh?? Was he that much of a rush or is he upset because I was on pain meds?? What is going on? I looked for a long time to find a answer & to make sure I had to have this surgery. & then to find a good surgeon for my knee & this is what happens?? This is also a surgeon who I was told does'nt write triplicates. What do you think happened?? Was he upset because I was on meds that are triplicates or is he just a sadist?? Any suggestions on how to let go of this?? I am so glad I can move it better but I am ANGRY that I was treated this way & trying to make sense of it all.t I am really curious to what really happened here? Do you think that he was upset that I was on pain meds for bone on bone pain or was he just rushing & did'nt want to wait for anesthesia?Thanks, Laura
