right tkr 5/1/2018..
-5 wks post op. Starting outpatient PT in 2 days...6/5/18. Flex at 115/-2. Walking steps total about 1.5 mile per day. Still some pain, tightness and swelling but doing good.
-10 wks post op. Scar tissue increasing in front of knee (changed PT therapist)...pain side and back of knee (Baker's cyst came back). Flex at 120. Doing stretching & manipulation of scar tissue, knee very tight, pulling....cannot go down stairs normally yet. Saw surgeon today, he does not want to do anything at this point but continue PT...I have follow up appointment 2 wks.
