Six days after MUA and 14 weeks after TKR and I feel due to the MUA I've gone back quite a bit. I was recovering well and strengthening my knee and was able to walk quite a distance and have been back driving for 8 weeks. My bend was as low as 65% and under the MUA my surgeon got it back to 95% to 100%. However, on discharge my knee has certainly stiffened up again and my range is probably back to about 80%. The exercises are so tough and I have to take as many painkillers as I can to do them but I now have pains in the my new knee that I haven't had since three or four weeks after the TKR! I'm a bit miffed but maybe I should accept that my range will never be much better than what it is now. My surgeon said as much saying that everybody is different - some can't walk as well as I can but can bend their knees normally. Help!
