Hi, I am just at nine weeks following a TKR.
I feel that in general I have made some good progress. My nights are better, I am walking short/medium distances without crutches and the pain is less all-encompassing.
But I do have an insecurity about my 'bend.' I realise that this is not the be-all-and-end-all, but I am concerned about my progress.
Three wees ago my surgeon took a look at it and told me I was 'about 110' dgrees. The next day my physio measured it at 100. And at each session since she has measured it at 105.
Now I may be wrong here but I do feel I have gone beyond the position she measured as 105, and wonder about the accuracy of the caluculation. A numbut of other people in the class also feel that her measuring may be on the 'conserevative' side.
The thing is that altough I feel my bend is bending further, I don't really know what a bend of 110/120 etc might 'look' like.
Are there any photos or illustrations anywhere that might help??
