    HI Tynetta

    how are you feeling now? hope it makes a big improvement for you. i had my TKR in march this year and my knee ROM is only 50 as it seized up at 5 weeks post op. so im going in for the same procedure on the 17th December. I have to stay in for 3 days because of a heart condition. I hope and pray all goes well for you and you have a speedy recovery. keep us posted I'l be wishing you well.

    kindest regards

    Good luck. Be interested to see how you get on. Was it to improve ROM? If so what was it before?

      im pleasantly surprised,it's day 2&my 1st day of therapy& I'm still numb,well semi numb&im not in much pain at all! i had severe scar tissue&wasn't even at 60degrees after 9 months! today my bend was at 91 degrees!! im quite sure when I get all my feelings back I'll be sore but this CPM machine is a BIG HELP bc it keeps ur knee in constant motion& it keeps the scar Tissue away! good luck with everything!

      Depends Kathleen. My doc did the arthoscopic surgery first, to clean out the scar tissue, THEN did the manipulation...... I hope the manipulation alone will work for you.... I will say, the pain was nowhere near what it was after the TKR. So, good luck.
