Ouch

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

I had to stop my Celebrex (anti-inflamatory, pain med) in preparation for my upcoming surgery. All I can say is, 'more ouch'. I am counting the days until my total knee replacement.

    I REMEMBER WHEN THEY TOOK ME OFF VIOXX. I WENT FROM TOTALLY FUNCTIONAL TO WALKING WITH TWO CANES IN LESS THAN A WEEK. THEN IT WAS A WHEELCHAIR FOR NEARLY TWO YEARS BEFORE I SUCKED IT UP AND GOT BACK ON TRACK. MY KIDNEYS ARE FAILING SO NO MORE NSAIDS FOR ME. NOW I HAVE TO JUST TOUGH IT OUT AND USE HEAT OR ICE. WE DO WHAT WE HAVE TO DO TO SURVIVE. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR SURGERY. I TOO HAVE A KNEE THAT NEEDS REPLACING BUT I CAN'T HAVE IT DONE. BUMMER!

    I've never been able to take Celebrex - way too rough on my system. The best one for me was actually Vioxx before it was taken off the market. Hope you can cope until your surgery!!! It's getting closer and soon it will be behind you!

    I'm on 400-800 mg of ibuprofen (Motrin) daily. It's for my back. When I have to stop taking it before a medical procedure, I realize my knees hurt, my shoulders hurt ... heck, just about everything hurts! I sympathize!

    I have had to stop my blood thinner (aspirin) and my iron for my endoscopic ultrasound coming up to check on my stomach tumor.
    I am certainly feeling more achy so I can sympathize!

    That is so difficult!! Take it easy and I hope you don't have too long to be so uncomfortable. (Does Tylenol work for you?) Will be keeping you in my prayers!!

    Sorry you are in pain. Hang in there! Keep us posted. Since I am faced with knee replacement in the future, always good to know what you go through and how it went. Take care.
