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?

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).

I am just continuing with intensive physiotherapy till I see the surgeon again in a few weeks. Has anybody else had a problem with a femoral nerve block ?
