Physical Therapy (PT): How long? Where did you do it?
Thank you for this inf!
My ROM was 126 this week, I did some stretching today and plan on talking to the pt too!

@katclub, a flexion of 126 at one month is pretty good from what I remember and understand. I had a horrid recovery due to scar tissue that needed two manipulations. It took me a good 12-18 months to get to my final ROM which is now somewhere around 0-105. I would have liked to get to that 120-130 range, but the scar tissue was just so aggressive that I was not able to push through any further. I had mine in 2006, so it has been a while, but I do remember the pain subsiding at a steady pace. My experience was a bit different though because of the manipulations post replacement. The pain was far more intense awaking from those manipulations that it was from the actual replacement. I've learned a lot from all of the members in this thread about just how different we all are in our recovery.
