@mwatts91757 I’m so sorry for what you are going through. Since you traveled a distance to have the surgery I’m sure you must have done a lot of research trying to find the best possible surgeon th do it.
I had a CPM machine after my first TKR and turned it in early since I did not feel it was helpful. There are many doctors who do not feel they are. My second TKR was done by a doctor who did not suggest one, he made no comment on them either way. So, the CPM machine probably would not have made much difference for you.
I was in such extreme pain prior to my first TKR that I did little research into surgeons. If I knew then what I know now – how many of these surgeries leave patients unhappy — I would have researched more and waited longer to get a better surgeon. As it is, the first is not bad, but the second one by a different surgeon at Brigham and Womens has definitely been better, I’m very happy with it. I hope a cause and a solution is found soon.
@doodles418 I can understand not wanting to wait to have this fixed. It’s awful when pain plagues you daily, especially when you think there may be a solution but you can’t have that yet. I hope you are able to get something done sooner.
I hope we hear back from both of you as you progress.
