@saeternes I cannot take ibuprofen but if you can they say it is almost as effective as the narcotic drugs. I can only take acetaminophen due to my immunosuppressant medications.
It sounds as if you are making great progress though, keep it up. It's great to hear positive results so please keep reporting.

@contentandwell : briefly: You and perhaps someone else mentioned that ibuprofen is as effective as opioids for pain control. This is an urban legend, let me assure you. Ibuprofen, as well as any strength tylenol, or aspirin, merely put useless chemicals in my system. Aleve (used to use Celebrex on occasion) works to some extent, almost to the same extent that Oxycodone does. I just sort of found out by other people on this post that I probably never started out with the proper high dose of 10 mg, so I was semi-content with 5 mg, and gave up on it way to soon. Will remember this for my next (yeah, right, not happening) TKR.
