Sounds to me like you might need some physical therapy, acupuncture: look up msm, digestive enzymes, & krill oil as anti inflammatories. Hrs, md. www.thepmc.or. ...Read more

Patella dislocation: It's still sideways? Are you sure it's back (we say "reduced"). Patellar dislocations are usually easy to manage, but am x-ray is needed to properly asses it.

Frenectomy:can't take ibuprofen, aspirin,advil, etc w/oxaprozin(daypro). Meds for pain? I can't talk w/out pain and on a scale of 1-10 it's about a 7or8.

Oral Lidocaine: Buy an oral anaesthetic, the kind you spray to the back of your throat to numb it, except use it in the surgical area. Try to find one that is meant for the mouth (swish and spit) rather than the kind for the throat. It will improve each day and this should help you tolerate the pain a bit more. ...Read more
