Yes my surgery was same day surgery and I had a nurse and therapy for 2 weeks at home then outpatient and even went in for a second procedure after 6 week check up because he didn't like my ROM but it's still hasn't changed, my ROM is only about 80 and I can't straighten it all the way either, I've iced it and elevated it also

Hi Gertrude,

I've had two TKRs this year, both with the Mako robotic assistant, and both went well. My ROM is 130 degrees in both knees with 0 degrees of extension. I'm a 67 y/o male.

It sounds like you may have a buildup of scar tissue in the knee, keeping the knee tight and in pain. Now with that said, 1) I'm not a doctor and 2) you may have already looked into this.

Scar tissue would form if you didn't do all the stretching exercises immediately after surgery, or possibly if you didn't do enough. I'm not suggesting that's what happened, just sharing what I've been told.

Have you discussed this or a revision surgery with your doctor? Best of luck to you.

Joe
