I'm very happy to have the resources at hand, for sure, but as I told Debbra below, I'm not quite grateful yet. Speaking of NH, dh and I have just put in an offer on an lovely old house in a tiny town there! PM if you like 🙂 Don't know how we will finesse a move during all of this, but we'll work it out. So tired of the rat race in MA. I'd love to know who your friend went to for rehab/PT.

I just read your story very heartbreaking . I had a total knee replacement one year ago at New England Baptist Hospital .
I am still 20° away from the goal they have set for me which is 105° flexion . I have had a second opinion,x-rays, and they cannot find an anatomical reason why I cannot flex my right leg . They blame it all on scar tissue . I have had 60 sessions of physical therapy been riding my recumbent bike at my house every day, and do my exercises . I am in pain when I walk from my car to the entrance of the store . Also when climbing stairs I cannot do it step over step . I was never given a CPM machine upon discharge from the hospital which I think would’ve made a grave difference . In addition to the 60 sessions of PT I had a Dynasplint, and two manipulations . We happen to live in Massachusetts but we are 70 miles south heading towards Cape Cod . If anybody has any similar experiences but they please share it with me and what treatments have been done thank you very much !!
