Suggest treatment for chronic knee pain
Following suggestions to manage chronic knee pain.
I am sorry for the situation you are in.
If I was your caring doctor would prescribe various oral pain killers and observe their effect. In other words, I would prescribe (let's say ketoprofene) for at least a couple of weeks and see if you get pain-relief. If not, I'd switch to another drug other than hydrocodone-like drugs that make your stomach upset.
Next, you are reporting to have your meniscus removed and your pain is caused by bone to bone situation. At this point, oral pain-killers are not the only solution. If I was your caring doctor would recommend multiple approach:
- first, I'd analyze at what extent the damages inside your knee have been developed. Then, decide for best treatment option. That's why I suggest to run arthroscopy to evaluate the changes inside your knee and decide if you need any further surgical intervention (total or partial knee replacement)
- physio-therapy is highly recommended to strengthen the local muscles and prevent further injuries
- applying local analgesic cream can also be of help
- after evaluation by arthroscopy would decide if you can benefit of injections directly into the knee
With regards to prescriptions, we cannot provide online prescriptions as it is against our laws.
Hope it was of help! Wish fast recovery!
