Upper limit of ROM after knee replacement?

@mhort1213 : You are doing super in your flexion. My PT was not concerned that I was stiff and sore, she was concerned that if not stiff and sore – which was an unfortunate timing – that on any other day my flex would be too great for what the knee is designed for. 2nd input of 135 max…. I guess there’s something to it. So…. I sometimes run across a post 4 yr. PKR woman at the indoor pool where I swim and work out, and she can take hold of the front of her ankle and bend the leg decently toward her butt. Like pretty close. But – in the water. I have no way to even do that move, without contorting my back………. also seems like more than 135……….

Wanted to add…. went to PT for hip problem. Knee flex measurement was spur of the moment, sort of just because I was there, and curious. Incidental.

@ellerbracke I am envious of your pool friend, but at the same time just thinking of bending my knee that far back upsets my stomach a bit! OUCH.
