8 weeks post-op right TKR and my quads still are not responding to physical therapy treatments and exercise. Believe me when I say my therapist has tried everything! My bend is 125, I'm walking good, still working on a full extention, have tolerable pain that I only need to take Advil for. I never realised how important our quad muscles are until mine have not been working. Surgeon says it's quad muscle trauma from the tourniquet used during surgery and they are just taking longer to recuperate. I can for the most part, deal with the issues from the lack of quad muscle use, but the worst for me is not being able to drive. Hopefully "this to shall pass".
