@contentandwell do you mean the bike seat? I can't reach the pedals when I move it too far back. I'm doing okay with elliptical so I'll stick with that for a while.

@saeternes yes, I was referring to the bike seat. Just move it back far enough so that you are able to pedal without bending your knee so much that it hurts too much. You will be surprised at how quickly you will be able to be able to move it forward, one notch at a time.
I like the elliptical too and do that at my health club, but I have my bike in my bedroom.

@ellerbracke WOW, 135! I thought that was the max they expect patients to attain, and the max that most replacement knees can be expected to reach. That’s great. I hope when I start PT for osteoporosis next week that I will be able to get the therapist to measure my flex.
