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.

@dixiedog THanks. My TKR was in 2017 so the incision is fine, the bursitis was exacerbated by a trochanteric femur fracture – no surgery.
I do use the pool for at my health club for water aerobics and pool jogging and it does help.
