Hi All, I am five weeks post TKR surgery. Back in April I had THR. Both surgeries went very well. I heal quickly. I have been walking without aids for at least two weeks. Going upstairs normally (with a little extra effort). My ROM reached 115 degrees very quickly and when I went to FU appt with surgeons assistant I a at 120 degrees which she said was their goal anyway. However, my knee I am still super stiff. I start outpatient PT Monday and I am hoping this will help. I've been doing my exercises, but the stiffness doesn't seem to improve.
One other thing, during the knee surgery it was confirmed I have RA. My rheumatologist didn't know if I had RA or PMR. I've been testing negative for RA. I think from what I have read the RA should not be an issue in that knee any longer. Per my surgeon my hip did not have signs of RA
Still wondering about the stiffness, though. I am hoping someone can give me some insight.
