I saw my surgeon a few days ago for a 5 week follow-up and he was not willing to do a manipulation on my knee yet. Said it would bleed at this stage and cause mor scarring, so need to wait for the 12 week stage. In the meantime he's hopeful I can still get the bend without manipulation. It's been at 85 for about 3 weeks now. So, he upped my pain pills again, and has precribed a JAS brace, which I can't get until it is approved by Medicare, and that may take 3 weeks! Apparently this brace bends your knee for you but at a much lower pain level and a much slower speed than the physio uses. You use it 3 times/day for 30 mins. The reviews on the JAS website are great but that's to be expected. Just wondered if anyone on this forum had tried one?
