    also, my surgeon said he could have done capsular release of the knee, but didn't need to. anyone had experience with that?

    I'm in the same position, 6 months after the scar tissue removal.  My consultant has referred me to a pin specialist and I've started hydrotherapy. The pain specialist has also recommended acupuncture.  My leg is a lot more bent than yours.  I hired a CPM machine last year, which I did very well with initially but I have to have the bottom figure set on about 20 now.

    That's very young for knee replacement.
