Hi! Today is 3 weeks since I had a left TKR. I'm doing very well pain wise and can bend to a full right angle an slightly more once stretched a few times. I can also walk upstairs normally with a little effort. However, I've noticed that within a short space of time of doing my flexing exercises (which are very uncomfortable /painful) I can feel everything around my knee tightening and "shortening " again. I'm talking literally within 5 minutes or so, even if I continue to walk around afterwards. I do bend my knee and walk as normally as possible but can still feel this tightening. It's as if everything I did had no effect at all. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm just worried about developing scar tissue that'll need dealing with.
