Had my 2nd Outpatient PT today. Took 1 pill before going ( really glad I did !!! ) Not on a bike yet but on machine where you sit push your legs forward and back for 5 minutes not too bad. Did some stretching Therapist checked my ROM 131Degrees on my own no straining last week 125. All that is great however still have my share of pain but now down to 2 pain pills a day. I think my biggest problem my quads are just super weak. When I walk I have to be careful otherwise L knee will just decide to give out which causes me to stumble. Trying to do a straight leg raise so far is a joke as well as putting a bolster under the knee tighten my quad and try and lift my foot off the mat not even close to getting it off the mat my quad tightens but that is it. Overall not bad best part of therapy got to use the Game Ready ice cold with compression Love It!!!

    What ”pills” are you taking? Bangkok-Johnnie TKR Right Kner 2014 edition. Now, waiting for a new implant, since the old was infected and had been taken out.

    Pain wise its better but its still not great. After therapy my day is shot. On the positive side 2 pills a day is much better than 6. Have to admit some progress.
