Well my surgeon took a look at my note from my PT ,and asked why I have such a hard time bending. I said swelling I guess and the top of my quad is spool tight. He proceeded to try and bend my knee and said we need to do a manipulation. He said lots of surgeons wait until 12 weeks, but it's obvious you are battling scar tissue and muscles as hard as a rock. I agreed. My muscles could be like that before surgery from a bad arthroscopic surgery 31/2 years ago, so I guess it wasn't a shocker. So next Wednesday I make the 3 he trip back to the hospital I had my tkr. He said I will have a nerve block again in the knee and light general anesthesia. That I would be out for only 30minutes then they wake me up and I go home. I told him I was concerned about the pain, because they couldn't get it under control the day after my surgery. He said the pain wouldn't be anything like the pain I had to endure from the surgery. I just stopped oxycodone a week ago, so I'll be back on that again, so still won't be able to drive.😥. I will have PT the next morning after . I can't the same day because I live in Maine and the hospital I used for all this is 3hrs away in New Hampshire. Anyone have any advice that has has MUA? didn't think I'd be asking that question!!
