@ssbionicknee : nice to know you also had more trouble to get the knee to be straight, as opposed to bending. It took me almost 4 months (!!) to finally get there. With lots, and lots, and lots of excercising. Never thought it would be so difficult. Seems most people have problems with the opposite range of motion. Given a choice – not really – I am ok with delayed extension, and really good ROM. Last measured (while sore, stiff, and borderline cramping from yard work, and at PT for hip pain) at 132 degrees.

@contentandwell : just saw your post about bilateral hip bursitis. From previous posts, you certainly had more than your share of problems. I really hope that cortisone shots will help you, especially since you seem to be the poster child (woman) of really successful TKR’s,
with an impressive exercise routine (at any age)!.
