Had my first check up since I had TKR on July 1st. I didn't have a 90 degree bend when i was discharged after 6 days and i still don't have it now. Despite that i am relatively pain-free and hop about fairly briskly. So today I was really worried about seeing the consultant with my lack of ROM. However he was mainly concerned with my ability to straighten my knee! Typical!
My other knee is actually worse than the knee I just had replaced so that is permanently bent and he is concerned that the new knee will also end up bent if i don't work at it.
He said my scar was absolutely excellent. If it is of interest to anyone in the UK i have been using Boots scar reduction serum three or four times a day since the clips came out.
I have to go back in three months and hopefully actually see a physio who will help push me to get this knee right and avoid anything like MUA. He mentioned me needing the other knee done but i said i wasn't ready to go through it all again right now. This has already taken over my life and been hard and I wasn't ready to go through it all again until knee number one is fully useable. He said he didn't blame me. So... Back to the grindstone for me.
