Jun 19, 2019 · Scar tissue after knee replacement in Joint Replacements

Hi Babette, my surgery was in 10/18 and manual manipulation in 12/18. Stairs are difficult and goin down is much harder than going up, so I’m thinking it’s normal what your experiencing. Even while we are hiking terrain going up is easier than downhill. My mother has had both knees replaced 10 years ago + and she tells me what I’m experiencing, what your feeling is pretty normal. I am curious as to what your dr says in July and can’t wait to hear. I didn’t expect to be living like this at 55.

I’m 7 months post op. While there feeling gets better, it still always feels tight. Keep up your pool therapy and use the cpm machine as much as you can. Some insurances pay for you to have a cpm at home thru your dme coverage- please check. You may need a script from your dr to have it. It will be worth it!

May 21, 2019 · Has anyone had a tight band feeling after total knee replacement? in Joint Replacements

I am 7 months post op. And understand your pain. Seems like it’s been my own personal hell at times. Several things that have gotten me thru this: first was pt 4 days a week. Not just pt but specifically being in the pool doing my exercises for months. Exercising in the pool for about an hour each day then being on the com machine for another hour.. 2 1/2 months post op I had a manual manipulation. I dreaded it but it ended up being the best thing ever. I can’t say enough how important it is to get into the pool!
