i just went past my 1year Anniversary Feb 21st. I was looking at some of my posts from last year, I remember being so discouraged that I couldn’t bend my knee to the 120 PT wanted. I walked out of there crying many times because I was so afraid of the manual adjustment, my surgeon kept telling me that I was doing fine but I got into a competitive thing with other people who were walking, bending that knee to 120,throwing away the cane after a week, not taking painkillers, whew, lots to live up to.
Then it finally all came together, I could bend that knee to 120and beyond, didn’t need pain killers, I was out walking the cane and tripping on it so I discarded that.
So if you’re new to this please don’t be discouraged. You will get to where YOU are supposedly to be. No one else feels what you feel so keep your exercises up faithfully, ice like crazy, move around a lot, you can’t hurt this titanium knee, I was exercising the other day and it felt so strong.
You will heal and get better. Please, chin-up
