I had a revision TKR almost 4 weeks ago. This was to replace my initial prosthesis from 18 months ago. Although this was perfectly fitted, I could not bend or straighten the leg due to poor ligaments and some scar tissue. I have had ligaments stripped out and now have a long stemmed implant with hinges in place of ligaments. The upside is my leg will now straighten for the first time in years. The bend is another story - it currently sticks at approx 60 degrees.
I am terrified of having to go through any more procedures, I had complications this time and I don't feel up to anything else.
I currently see a physio twice a week and following a detailed exercise plan. I know all the exercises to do and have varying success with these....today though I feel like I have a lump of concrete in it.
I just wanted to know if anyone had struggled with their bend, when/did it improve? What exercise did you find helped the most? (I seem to spend half of my day sliding back and fourth).
After years of limited movement I would be thrilled with 90 degrees so I can ride my bike again.
