I also developed scar tissue, immediately following surgery, I was told it was genetic. I refused manipulation as I had such severe swelling and bruising after surgery. With aggressive and very painful PT I was able to get to 110 degrees, which I am at currently, at 11 weeks out. I have 2 PT sessions left and then will continue with my home exercising program. Hopefully all this snow will melt soon so I can begin some serious walking

I had my first TKR 7 weeks ago and now am dealing with painful scar tissue as well Trying to work with PT to avoid manipulation as I have read varying reports of success with these procedures this is a very frustrating time and the PT is so very painful
