Jul 26, 2019 · Scar tissue after knee replacement in Joint Replacements

Has anyone had or tried Ashtyn treatment? I read it’s highly effective. I had replacement surgery March 15 and scar tissue formed. Had manual manipulation May 23 and scar tissue came back even worse. Waiting to see surgeon again August 29th to see what we do now. Need this to stop! Hurts all the time, disrupts sleep and range of motion is getting worse! Saddest time of my whole life!

What is a revision and what do they do?

I see the surgeon again Friday and we’re going to talk about options and manual manipulation. I’m just disappointed that it hasn’t gone like I expected! I forgot I tend to get scar tissue or I’d have brought that up before surgery! Thanks for the kind words…I’ll keep you posted!

May 14, 2019 · Scar tissue after knee replacement in Joint Replacements

I had total knee replacement March 15 and after one week started physical therapy which ended up being aggressive. Started at 56 degrees and got up to 95 degrees but was brutally painful and when PT bent my knee to try and get it further I was always ending up screaming and in tears. Finally went back to my surgeon who was the best and he took me off PT and has me doing three exercises every hour hoping more frequent movements will help. I know there is scar tissue and it doesn’t seem to be getting any more flexible and still very painful. I go back this Friday to see him again. Manual manipulation has been discussed. Pain pills don’t even phase it. Nurse told me manipulation is like starting over! Very down in the dumps! All I do every day is exercise and set and ice! Don’t think I’ll ever consider doing other knee…not worth the pain!
