I had a partial knee replacement on Saturday under spinal and deep sedation. Woke up in recovery with no pain at all because of spinal and lots of local in knee

However by five hours later I started getting pain in my hip (knee fine), then had racing heart rate of coming up to 120bmp, the pain in hip continued to get worse and worse and was definitely nerve pain. Couldn’t have anything touching my skin at all and was hysterically crying by this point and I’m not a wimp

Ecg was done and in the end I had oral morphine, intra muscular morphine, oral diazepam, nefapam, oral paracetamol and intravenous paracetamol to try and get on top of the pain. Eventually by 1am it improved

Hospital think it was because I’d had to come off Gabapentin for operation. I agree with that and that the sinus tachycardia was because of pain as it did improve hugely once pain under control

I think the hip pain was possibly because of position leg was in during operation perhaps but god it was awful

Has anyone had a similar experience
