i am in my 20s. I had an acl surgery in october 2015, and lysis of adhesion for arthrofibrosis plus manipulation in January 2016. At the second surgery, the surgeon was still not able to achieve full extension. I was missing 5 degrees. he could have done posterior capsular release but felt it was unnecessary b/c he thought it wasn't worth it just to get 5 more degrees.
Now, we are in April, and i am missing at least 10 degrees of extension, and my bending isn't perfect either. I cannot walk smoothly. My knee feels wrong with every step. walking for more than 10mins is almost impossible b/c my knee will hurt so much. even when walking around the house my knee feels wrong and bent.
What should i do? has anyone had a failed lysis of adhesions? has anyone had capsular release? i am feeling very depressed and im sobbing every night b/c i recently got a career job (and they're hard to find for recent graduates), but i may have to quit it if i get another surgery. Please, give me any advise, i want to have a normal life again
