Did not have any back pain prior to knee replacement surgery October of 2012. The knee was totally revised in April of 2014 due to it being off center and not straight. I had to retire early and I am taking Percocet 10/325 4 times daily and Tylenol 650 between doses. I had previously taken ibuprofen & meloxcam until I had a heart attack in October 2015. Now only Tylenol. I'm in pain management and had several epidural injections and 2 nerve blocks.
