8 weeks post TKR and range of motion is not progressing. Bend at 100, (105 if PT pushing), extension at 8, (6 if PT pushing). I am frustrated and concerned -as I do my exercises, and PT pushes till my pain limit reached. I don't want a manipulation. I have read that ROM will continue to improve over the next few months. True? My husband is making the knee extension board so I can use it at home (pain!). Can I get some experienced comments...? Will I never bend adequately again? This is the most frustrating surgical experience -and I was unprepared for rehab....Help! Hate being a wimp -but was hopeful things would improve, not stall... Thanks everyone for all the helpful info each and everyone contributes to this blog.
