Dec 30, 2017 · scar tissue after knee replacement in Joint Replacements

I had X-rays done 2 years ago and the knee was structurally fine. My range of motion shortly after the replacement (they didn’t give me numbers) was enough to ride a bike and they seemed pleased with that. It has been a gradual change. Two years after the replacement i needed to help my 91 year old mother so my exercise regime went by the wayside. I now walk 3 -4 miles most days and have tried the stationary bike and other exercises that I used in rehab but it’s terribly painful.

Dec 30, 2017 · Scar tissue after total knee replacement. in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I had both knees replaced 11 years ago. My left knee now has limited range of motion to the point where I can’t ride my stationary bike. It occasionally swells, warm and is painful. I can walk 4 miles a day but bending more than that is impossible. Could it be scar tissue and if so can it be fixed after all these years. This has gone on for about 4 years. One doctor thought the swelling was synovial fluid and my ortho surgeon didn’t seem concerned about the limited range of motion.
