I am 11wks post TKR and 3 wks post MUA. Had difficulties with meds prescribed and even after the MUA low bend.
After my MUA I have had 3 x soft tissue massage and 2 x hydrotherapy sessions. The soft tissue I pay for and the hydro is on NHS - the first therapy I have had since my TKR.
In this period my knee bend has gone from 25 to 70 - ok its low compared to most of you BUT it is a real achievement to me. I thought I was doomed to never move again. I also feel positive that this can improve even more,
I dont over exercise, I go to my Physio sessions, and have bad days. but generally feel better than I did.
I would ask everyone to insist and fight for Physio after a TKR. We all need that support to achieve a normal movement and life.
