I had Tkr 2 and half weeks ago on my left knee. I have learned from this experience that you are fighting against the time. The moment that you had your knee surgery. Your body started to grow the scar tissue around the injured area. If you want to have less pain. First you must reduce the swelling. I ice my knee every day for the first two weeks before and after exercise and I also elevator with pillows at night. If you have too much swelling. It's quite difficult to do the daily exercise. Also the more pain you have at night. The more exercise that you needs to do in the day time because the ligament is trying to find it's own place and usually at night it pull the opposite ways. Now I am able to turn side to side with minimum pain. I know it's challenge at times. Believe me the sooner that you do your exercise the sooner that you will be getting better. I hope my insight can give you a little bit if encouragment. Keep up the good work
