on 10/8/2011, I had right knee replacement surgery less then 24 hrs after surgery I tried to get out of bed and fell. There was no alarm on the bed, nor any other safety device to hinder me from getting out of bed. Actually the dietician passed me my walker from across the room.( which he shouldn't have done). I was on strong medication not in my right mind. After the fall I have sever upper thigh pain ( tear according to physical therapist) severe lower back pain (prior to fall L4 & L5 degenerative disc) have numbness to lower leg and hip pain, nightmares, and phobias. They did not do a x-ray MRI, or Cat scan after the fall . All the aches and pains I experience after the knee replacement was attributed to the knee replacement. But I know without a doubt the fall has caused more damage
