Title: TKR , Scar Tissue, and bad extension...please help
Post by: wizardoz1 on April 15, 2018, 11:09:11 AM
Here is the skinny

14 years had a scope that got infected with Ecoli.

8 corrective surgeries

Wore out my knee over time and had a TKR on March 12 ,2018.

Now I am 5 weeks out with a MUA already and A 2nd one scheduled for Friday.   

Extension is +35 and Flexion is 70.

Lots of scar tissue and muscle tightness.

Trying to figure out alternative forms of rehab

Scared I may never walk again

Please help


PS....to add a little Doc said 1 of the top 5vworst knee ever and lots of bleeding post Op

Also mention bone density was like a 75 year old ( I am 50 )

Seems like you are beginning to develop arthrofibrosis. You will find the site http://kneearthrofibrosis.com/ helpful. This site is specifically dedicated to arthrofibrosis following knee replacement. I heard that the author also responds to questions informally.
