I'm 14 weeks post TKR and I've been told today that I need an MUA and arthroscopic Adhesiolysis. I have an extension of -30 and a bend of 80. Prior to surgery I had -30/50 so it has improved, obviously not enough though as I'm still in pain due to the angle of it.
I had a complicated surgery and don't just have the 'normal' TKR prosthesis. I have some other bits to strengthen the leg. My surgery took almost 4 hours.
I am actually really relieved that I need further surgery as I was starting to think I had done something wrong. My consultant said he considers it urgent for various reasons (one being I'm only 36 so the longer it's left, my muscles will strengthen considerably).
Whilst I know all about MUA, I haven't read about anyone else on here needing the Adhesiolysis (which is basically cutting the muscle away from where it's stuck). Has anyone had to have this done?
I have been told they hope to do this by keyhole but they may need to open up the leg again to reach parts.
I'm just interested to hear if this has been successful for anyone else.
