In a few days I will officially be 3 weeks out from my total knee replacement. I've been feeling pretty frustrated and discouraged by how slow this recovery is! I've been doing physical therapy 3x a week and while I'm almost being to 100 degrees my extension isn't great. I was constantly getting a 3 for extension but then after a really hard physical therapy session it jumped up to a 10! I was super freaked out! It's has stayed about a 5 for two sessions now. Has anyone else experienced this? My knee is pretty swollen still. I've been pushing myself pretty hard because I'm so frustrated with th extension! Sleeping is pretty rough still and I'm having burning down my shin. I'm guessing this is pretty typical though. I'm iust hoping I get my extension to 0 before my next doctors appointment in a month!!
