ACL reconstruction, dealing with the pain!

by bhakti

I had surgery in September. now i'm just 2 weeks post op and walking somewhat.

i still am unable to get a decent nights sleep. i don't experience knee pain, but more so pain in the ankle and calf. and the weird things is, i always wake up in pain at 3am.
my surgeon and doctor tried to make me go off tramadol after the first week, but the pain was too intense. i still have to take painkillers just to get a few hours sleep for the calf pain.

i was wondering if anyone else out there had a similar sort of problem?
