Arthrofibrosis/Manipulation Recovery Time
« on: November 02, 2008, 04:14:01 PM »
Can anyone tell me how look it to for you to recover after arthrofibrosis/manipulation surgery?  What was your ROM before and after surgery?  How long were you in PT for post op?

Had MUA Oct. 7, 2007. Requested a good anti-inflammatory two weeks afterwards. Made great progress after that. B/4 Manipulation, I was 110 degrees flexion and 7 extension. latest PT measurement has me at 123degrees flex and 3 extension...much better!!

good luck to you. I really believe in anti-inflammatories.

I'm very interested to know more about other people's timeframes also.  I'm not recovered yet, but here are my numbers.  These are all passive measurements, meaning someone/thing was pushing my leg to get there.

Surgery date: Sept 22, ROM 5 to 129.  LOA for AF, no MUA.  OS said I had full range while under.
Sept 25, ROM -5 to 70.
Oct 29, ROM -5 to 103
Dec 5, ROM -5 to 120 (active more like 90).
Jan 20, ROM -5 to 135 (active more like 100).
