i know someone who had a TKR 10 weeks ago. At six week she went in to have a full manipulation done under anaesthetic due to low range movement with 24 hours on a a CPM. This was due to scar tissue adhesions reducing movement.
Now ow she is getting 85-90 degree bend over edge of physio bench but can only side leg up when lying down to about 45-50 degrees.
Consultant wants more physio and says adhesions may reform with addn manipulation needed.
Stil il in pain when exercising at home and not very happy with progress. Can walk without stick.
Has anyone else had more than one set of manipulations and can anyone give advice as to whether this is normal or should we be concerned.
She had previously had two keyhole arthroscopies btw
Many thanks for any help
