Don't fear the MUA too much. It can really help, and it's not as bad as you are expecting.

You are right about avoiding overly aggressive PT. My first one had me crying so hard. Another PP told me that should not happen. I switched therapy company, and found a very effective PT who worked me just hard enough to be effective. I gained 10 degrees every week! Too much Pain is not good therapy technique!

Start immediately! With a good PT. Ask around, and set up your schedule Before you have surgery. Have someone help you to bend your knee several times per day, starting day of surgery. (Passive motion). Otherwise it will stiffen up and it's tough to get flexion. To get your muscles working again, stand up, hold onto something sturdy, and move your leg forward, back, and to the side several times to exercise. No one told me this before my first surgery!
