Dec 23, 2019 · scar tissue after knee replacement in Joint Replacements

I would go very aggressive. CPM. Everything. Ice after all care. Let us know how it goes.

I had that done and my Dr. was surprised there was so much scar tissue. I used my stationary bike every three hours after procedure (tiring, but I did not want the scar tissue to come back.) It worked quite well and I have been diligent about lunges, bike, walking, etc but it has come back after a year ( two years post TKR). Without the Lysis I probably would have very little movement. Good luck.

I tried the ablation and it did nothing for me. My sister in law had it done and it seemed to work for her. $4000 seems very steep. My recollection is they try it, wait a week, if it worked, they do it again on a permanent basis. My sister in law did not have to go back every six months. $4k every 6 months sounds like a scam. Anybody else have more info on this?

arthroscopic lysis (not lydia, stuck computer keys) and debridement of knee.

I had the same. My Prtho performed lydia to cut the scar tissue out. Took over two hours. Helped quite a bit. Now, 8 months later (after last procedure) my knee is really hurting. Supposed to see rheumotogist, but 3 month wait. I would be content with another scar tissue removal….

I was told that the risk of infection is the reason to wait. After six months, the TKR is more healed and not as prone to being infected?

Katp,
I also could not take oxy at night. Try Tylenol PM.

My biggest therapy was walking a lot, doing stair lunges, wall crawl, I had cortisone but not until after about four months. It is a struggle and a lot of pain. You will get through this. What was discouraging for me was to see people who had the same surgery, never exercised, did not do much P.T. and had excellent results. I thought, what in the hell am I doing wrong? We were just blessed with this scar tissue problem. It just makes you a stronger person.
