I am nearly 9 weeks post op and making good progress. My bend is good (not sure of degrees as they don't measure it at physio sessions but physio says it's good) but I need to improve leg extension. Physio says it's nearly there but I'm working on exercises to improve it. What worries me is I still get stiffness and pain in muscles at the back of leg, thigh down to calf on outside of knee and also some at inner knee. My consultant told me this is because I'd been walking wrongly for so long before op when I was unable to straighten my leg that they will take time to readjust. I just wonder how long this will take? Do I need to get the leg completely straight before the muscles will loosen up? I wondered if anyone who is 3/6 months or more post op who could tell me of their experiences. I know everyone is different but any encouragement or advice would be welcome. Thanks.
