Knee extension

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hello. How long has it taken your leg to fully extend and straighten? I had two knees done--the first one is slowly straightening. How long did it take yours to straighten? I am doing all the PT has said to do and exercises at home on my off PT days. Thanks.

    As I think I said elsewhere - it would be useful if people said what ttheir extension was before the operation otherwise I'm not sure all this "mine is  this and that after x weeks" is all that helpful.
