2017 has not been a good year. I had arthoscopic on my left knee in March. This cleanup worked, but made my knee a lot looser due to an acl injury that happened 20 years ago. Next option was to tighten the knee with reconstructive surgery. After talking to the doc about the condition of my knee and the removal of the inserted acl, we decided to bypass the reconstructive surgery and go with a tkr in June. My ROM has been bad, it feels as of the is a hard stop at 90 degrees, a lot of pain trying to progress past 90 degrees, and the new knee feels and looks huge (overstuffed). I have had 25 sessions at physical therapy, 3 different therapist say the knee is so dang tight. I had a manipulation a few weeks ago and also has a small amount of scar tissue removed, but the knee is right back where it was before the last surgery. At what point do you look for a second opinion on a possible revision? My knee bent 130 degrees before the tkr. I am 44 and I need to get back to work 100%.
