I'm six weeks post RTKR and whilst having a little wallow in the bath (deep joy) I realised it was also a great chance to practise my knee straightening exercise.
While the knee is warm and relaxed it is a good time to press it down towards the bottom of the bath and aim for that elusive 0 degrees....
It seems to be a good place to try as it is not squashy like the bed and you will definitely know if you achieve it.
I appreciate that this will not be suitable for everyone, but I am finding it a positive way to aim for a straight leg.
Am seeing my surgeon for check - up next week and am working hard towards my target.
Wish I had thought of this when I had the other knee done two years ago.
Hope someone else may find this useful.
Good luck to everyone with your re-hab. Don't despair, it takes time.
