Sep 4, 2018 · TKR at 7 weeks with flex at 95 and extension at -8? in Joint Replacements
My tkr was two weeks ago. I can get to 90 but I am concerned that isn't enough. I have the impression my PT expects more. Just makes me resent going even more.
Not sure if this will help, but …. they started me out on compression hose from the start with no end date in sight. I left them off one day and my leg and foot swelled twice their size. Put them back on and swelling in leg is gone but of course the knee is still swollen and this is to be expected. You only need wear the hose during the day but there is no harm in wearing them 24 hours/day if you are alone. You won't be able to put them on yourself so will be dependent on others. I wear mine 24/7 until a friend comes over to change every other day. Hope this works.
I began outpatient rehab 5 days from left tkr. I medicate before going. There is no escaping the pain. The pt is thoughtful of my pain but pushes me more than I would normally go. She somehow got my knee to 90 degrees for a brief moment yesterday. I am more sore today. This is all a big mystery to me. Am I on target or way behind where I should be? Should this new joint be moving more freely 10 days out? I don't mean to scare you. This has been my experience and won't necessarily be yours. Interested in hearing how it goes for you and others.
