Hi everyone. I am 45 and had TKR on my left knee 10/20/17. Surgery itself went fine. I stayed in the hospital 24 hours. I was doing so well, they let me go home. Started physical therapy within 5 days. I have only missed one up to this point. I had a lot of scar tissue build up quickly and had a manipulation done 11/20/17. I was and still am having serious issues with bending the new knee. It is literally "stuck" at 80°. I have yet to get past it. I had a second opinion and both doctors agree that something is just not "right". It feels like an stone is in my knee under the knee cap area and below. They can't seem to figure it out. Both said I would have to have TKR again. I truly don't want another surgery. At this point though, I really don't have much choice because I can't live like this. I am a very active, busy, involved "Grammie" that almost can't bear not being able to do things for myself or play with my grandchildren. I can't even go to the grocery store by myself. I am at my wits end not knowing what to do. Any ideas or suggestions?
