It went a little like this... Sleep, pain, Percocet, weird drugged sleep, pain, Percocet, miserable trip to the bathroom, pain, Percocet...
You get the idea.
The compression machine would squeeze my knee too hard. I had a lot of stitches and entry points that were sore. I slept on my back only. Moving my knee at all was just a bad idea.
I added Alleve on top of the Percocet. That seemed to help.
