Had my replacement on5/15 at the age of 52. Came home on a Thursday with home health. By Monday the Cumbiam had raised my blood to a 6.8. So the Dr thought I probably had some blood on my knee. My extension was only a 70.
Started out patient the following Tuesday and by that time my extension was a 66. The therapist was very aggressive but really only focused on straightening the leg. I would literally cry during one of the procedures he would do. I could not been my knee hardly at all. When he tried I screamed and the pain of a feeling of a sharp knife going down a up from knee was unbearable. He then decided that I had scar tissue.
My bend at that time was 75.
At 6 weeks I had a MUA. I go tomorrow for my 7 day check up with Dr. With the therapist forcing I can get 111 but I can only get 93 by myself. I do my exercises and ride a little bike but feel like I have failed in my recovery. So I am pretty sure I’m going to get chewed out tomorrow by my Dr tomorrow for not having the outcome he expected.
