Hi Everyone --
?Yesterday, July 31, I had my 9-month check up with my orthopedic surgeon. I've been having problems with the bending, which most of you know and have answered my posts. When I saw the surgeon in January 2017, he broached the idea of a manipulation or another 30 days of physical therapy. I chose the physical therapy because it was less invasive. Now, this is what the surgeon told me yesterday: " I should have had the manipulation because my bend is only 105." Can't have it done now because I have developed adhesions/scar tissue and it is not advisabe to have one done at this late. He said that he cannot scope it because the adhesions/scar tissue will grow back within a few days. So bottom line -- there is not much that he can do and the pain might eventually go away. He told me to continue my exercise at home and the gym, especially on the bicycle. I have pain everyday in the back and outer side of the right knee. I still ice and rub my knee every night. I know that many people have told me that the bend and pain will take up to 18 months. I can deal with not being able to bend it to 120, but the pain is a different story.
?Anyone have any suggestions other than what I have mentioned. At the present time I am very depressed. Thank you. J-21370
