Detailed Answer:
Hi I am Dr Gopal Goel Orthopedic Surgeon.
The choice of pain killers after total Knee replacement generally depends on the surgeon or surgical protocol in a particular hospital. Here we normally give a combination of tramadol and paracetamol.
Rehab includes knee motions and muscle strengthening exercises and gait training. Sometimes rehab can be painful and last long depending on patient's condition.
Thanx for the question. Please feel free to ask any other question.
