Feb 27, 2018 · ACL reconstruction and Meniscus repair in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Hi Justin. My ACL was redone about 14 years ago. My knee was replaced October 19th. I am now starting to sleep at night. i went to PT after 6 weeks of little progress and I'm at 2-128. I still don't feel real good about the TKR, but I'm hoping it continues to strengthen and hurt less. I was facing a manipulation, but the PT really made the difference.

Dec 11, 2017 · scar tissue after knee replacement in Joint Replacements

Hi Justin. I am concerned about the procedure…namely, I’m worried that forcing the knee to bend could have some adverse effects on the ligaments and tendons in my knee. I have had 4 surgeries prior to this including an ACL, so to me it sounds a little like we are just going to force the bend and see what happens. I’m not a doctor…so I don’t expect to completely understand. I just don’t completely know the risk vs the reward. I want to get back to riding a bike…maybe doubles tennis…that kind of thing. I’m working on my patience and long term approach to the whole thing.

Dec 11, 2017 · scar tissue after knee replacement in Joint Replacements

I had my TKR 7 weeks ago…going in this week to try to break the scar tissue…they are putting me out. Haven’t slept well since the surgery…great deal of pain. Biggest issue is Range of Motion…only at 95 degrees. I want to remain active, but I’m getting nervous. Surgeons did not recommend Physical Therapy initially, but now they want me to start. I’m confused about that as well…I’ve worked it hard at home.
