Hi 48, I'm 15 weeks post TKR, I had a manipulation 3 weeks ago, surgeon got the bend to 130, I've only managed between 75-90 at PT and I got 100 in hydrotherapy. I have a very stiff knee all the time. I'm seeing my consultant next Thursday and am worried about what he will say about my progress, he wasn't very Happy about the 1st manipulation as he said it was rare , had me apologising to him as I felt I had let him down. What is the most they expect from the bend? And will they do a 2nd manipulation. I'm dreading seeing him this journey has been awful, I'm exercising 3 x a day and going for walks but my knee is very stiff and always seems very swollen and purple in colour . Any advice appreciated x
