Chronic Pain after Knee Replacement

Knee Replacement Pain?  Nerve Damage after Surgery?

Where do you turn when you can’t take pain meds?

I had rapid onset arthritis and within 6 months had to have my knee replaced.

Kathleen told me via video call. She called some weeks after surgery. Her knee was swollen to twice its usual size. It was burning and red. Medicines hadn’t helped.

She had intense, cutting pain and her surgeon diagnosed surgical nerve damage, which she’d have to live with.  He gave her a SHORT course of Naproxen, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) & was reluctant to prescribe this because of her history of stomach ulcers. He gave her Omeprazole to protect her stomach from the NSAID. She was in great pain and running out of conventional alternatives.

I prescribed 3 doses of calendula 200c, each an hour apart and the swelling, burning heat and redness were gone by the morning. [I’ve found this to work rapidly in a number of similar cases].

The surgeon’s diagnosis made me doubt we’d be able to cure the cutting pain.  Mag phos will often resolve post-surgical pain but it didn’t help this time.  Nor did Hypericum, which would be my next suggestion. (A good remedy for pain remaining in surgical incision sites is Staphysagria).

We had a full consultation & I learned something remarkable about Kathleen. She had been extremely cold for more than 60 years, since having TB as a child.

I only have to move a tiny bit and my body goes so cold and tingly. Showering is awful. I have to have the room really hot & I still feel freezing when I undress.

It was something that was very difficult to live with.  Kathleen had a very deep sense of duty, held her feelings in and was unable to say no to other people’s wishes.   She had a lot of symptoms that pointed very clearly to a homeopathic remedy called Carbo animalis.

I gave her Carbo animalis 200c am & pm for one day. The cutting pain in the knee went! Great joy! I was expecting to hear how happy she was, but a while later she told me, very disappointed …

The pain is gone, but for one day I was warm, and now I’m cold again!

When you suddenly see what is possible, the goalposts move!

We repeated the Carbo animalis 200c daily in water doses for a few months before she became consistently warm.

It would have been great if she’d discovered homeopathy earlier. With people who need this remedy, I see a medical history of heart stents fitted (as Kathleen has), stomach ulcers and Gastric Antral Vascular Ectasia (Watermelon Stomach), and knee disorders.  This remedy is also associated with lymphatic & stomach cancers, so treating people as early as possible can have great benefits. Those benefits don’t just total the problems solved, but also the problems potentially avoided.

***** See this article for explanation of how we progress into deeper and deeper disease states and how to avoid doing so *****

I treat patients for pain when they can no longer use conventional drugs or suffer the ill effects of them.  Come for homeopathy first. 
NSAIDs 
can have terrible side effects.
Read Michael’s case of stomach ulcer caused by Naproxen.
John’s case is the most dramatic. He was left incapacitated, with no solution, after Aspirin destroyed his stomach lining, yet he had to continue to take Aspirin to prevent blood sticking to his heart stents (he also recovered with Carbo animalis).

Stomach ulcer symptoms: natural treatment

Michael recovered from a stomach ulcer and sciatica.

Stomach ulcer symptoms brought Michael to me, via Skype, from his sick bed a few days before Christmas.  He was in extreme pain, and as this was caused by the anti-inflammatory pain killers he had taken for sciatica he had no way to relieve the pain.   A homeopathic remedy (kali carb 1m in his case) rapidly relieved his stomach ulcer symptoms and saved Christmas for the family.

treating stomach ulcer symptoms with homeopathy

“I started having sciatic pain in September 2015,  I went to the doctor who prescribed some extra strength painkillers.  Unfortunately these led to me having severe stomach cramps and stomach ulcers.  The pain would come and go but would strike approximately 2 times a week and when it did it would last for up to 12hrs and was very painful.  I tried various prescription and over the counter remedies both pharmaceutical and more natural but the pain kept getting worse, lasting longer and more frequent, especially after dairy or fatty/greasy food.  I lost over 1 1/2 stone in just under a month.  I contacted Sally for an acute appointment and was given a recommendation for a remedy, which certainly reduced the pain.   This was then followed up by a full appointment over Skype which confirmed the suggested remedy as the best one for me,  and when I felt the symptoms start to build again I took the remedy and it was remarkable how well it staved off the pain.  It has now been at least a couple of weeks since the last episode and I feel much better and have even managed to start eating limited dairy again.  Now all I need to do is keep the weight off that I lost!  Thank you Sally!”

Stomach Pain & Ulcer Symptoms

Stomach pain symptoms have a wide variety of causes:

Symptoms directly from stomach disorders:
acute gastritis, alcoholic gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, hiatus hernia & reflux.

Medications, food sensitivity & cancers that can cause stomach symptoms:
Stomach symptoms can be caused by anti-inflammatory medications as in Michael’s case, or food allergies & sensitivities such as gluten and dairy intolerance.
Stomach pain can, on rare occasions, be a symptom of some cancers.

Many disorders not within the stomach can present with ‘stomach’ symptoms:
gallbladder disease, hepatitis, pancreatitis, angina and endometriosis.  Thus it is important to have the source of the pain investigated not so much for choosing homeopathic remedies but for making management decisions.

Stomach ulcer symptoms

Some of the symptoms you may experience are …

  • dull pain in the stomach.
  • weight loss.
  • not wanting to eat because of pain.
