In brief: Work with surgeon

Pain after total knee replacement varies from patient to patient.
Most orthopaedic surgeons use a "multimodality" pain management approach, using different types of medications, not just narcotics, to help with pain control. A combination of tylenol, (acetaminophen) Celebrex or mobic, and Lyrica can be used with an oral narcotic medication like norco. Remember that ice is an important tool for pain management.
