Mako Robotic Arm TKR ONE WEEK

@dixiedog I was actually to my orthopedic surgeon this week. My flex is @117. I was told they can improve that if it’s a problem for me but I think it’s functional enough. The improvement would involve a minor outpatient procedure. I have always had full extension.
My problem now is severe, recurrent bursitis. That is causing a limp which is affecting both knees. It is worse this time than ever before.

117 degrees is great motion and if you’re able to do activities with minimal limitations, all the better! Sorry to hear about the bursitis. Are you able to get into a pool? Sometimes water therapy does wonders for bursitis but I don’t know your circumstances or the state of your knee incision. Are you using an assistive device? As if not, you may need to as to unload your hips (is that where the bursitis is?) so that can calm down.
