ORIF patella post-op pain?
« on: May 11, 2008, 01:58:46 AM »
I had ORIF surgery on my left patella two days ago. I got home from the hospital yesterday and the pain has been really bad and I haven't been sleeping. Anyone have any idea how many days until the pain will start to subside to a more manageable level?
