So I'm 3.5 weeks post op TKR. I have been doing very well, walking and stairs. Home therapy came to my home the first 2 weeks and all went good with that. I started outpatient physical therapy Friday. My extension was -5 and 0 with help and 113 flex 120 with help. The physical therapist was really surprised how good my knee was doing so quickly. Anyways we did exercises that felt ok at the time we were doing them. He admitted he pushed me hard considering how well the knee was doing. After leaving it immediately swelled and felt like it was on fire. I was in so much pain and 3 hours later bruising formed. I called the PT to let him know and he assured me to ice and elevate this was normal. Well here it is 2 days later and I'm now stiff, swollen in pain and hard to walk. I know the PT has to be done but I felt like my knee was recovering better before the physical therapy. Has anybody had a similar situation??
