I am due for major knee surgery next week but

I am due for major knee surgery next week but both my knees are so weak that they let me fall often. When I am just sitting being quiet they shake (kinda looks like grand mal seizure - but only my legs shake not my whole body) I had epilepsy for 25, but been 26 seizure free - so I call these anxiety attacks - the only medicine that works is klonopin, but getting a doctor to prescribe it has been a challenge. I only take it when the anxiety attack happens....why is it so hard to get a pill that works instantly in 10-15 to solve a problem

My husband underwent knee surgery two weeks ago. He was having constipation problems, (perhaps due to the Percocet he was taking for pain). Then his doctor prescribed Colace (twice a day), Amitiza (twice a day) for the constipation. He has been having regular bowel movements lately, but is feeling very nauseous. THe surgeon had prescribed Zofran for the nausea...and now he is having some diarrhea and feels very bad. My question is...what course should we be on?? (He will see his general practitioner tomorrow, but what should we do in the meantime? Thanks so much for any helpful advice.

I just found out I have an infection in a tooth that needs a retreat root canal . They popped the gum boil yesterday in the Endodontist s office. I am scheduled for meniscus knee surgery next Thurs. Should I be worried about the tooth infection - will it harm anything for the knee surgery? I plan on getting the root canal in a couple weeks after the knee surgery.
