    PKR Frustrated after PKR

    My dr doesn't do email or text with patients. But I'll call if the pain doesn't get better. He saw the spot 3 days ago but really no pain that day in his office.

    Ok will do. My OS wanted to see me back in 3 weeks to re-check this. But the pain really just started Saturday after I saw him. If it gets worse, I'll definitely call to get in sooner.

    PKR Frustrated after PKR

    Can I ask one more question (ok I'm sure it won't be my last)... there's a spot on my incision scar that keeps giving me issues.

    Well you are all wonderful, and right on with your advice. My PT feels like we need to back off the excruciating bending exercises and spend the next few days just stretching out the muscles, nerves and everything else. It felt wonderful in my session today! They totally did not agree with my...

    PKR Frustrated after PKR

    Hi, I'm new here (59 yo woman) and have been reading through a lot of the posts. I am 7 weeks out of a partial knee replacement (medial). I was on a walker for 1.5 weeks, then a cane until week 4. PT had me stop using that and honestly I don't feel like I need it. My problem is my flexion. I can...
