bleed from femoral nerve block

Posted by canfriend @canfriend, Nov 21, 2021

I am 12 weeks post TKR but had bleeding with the femoral nerve block. Could not make headway with ROM. During MUA, surgeon could only get to about 112 degrees. Is there a connection with the bleeding and the scar tissue?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Joint Replacements group.

Oh my goodness, @canfriend
I am sorry you are having these complications. I understand that you had trouble with range of motion (ROM) during Manipulation under anesthesia (MUA).

What is your medical team doing to counteract these issues?
