    I’m ready to quit going to physical therapy. For a couple of reasons 1. I can do most of the same things at home 2. From the time to leave to go to appt to getting home can be 2-2 1/2 hours each time 3. In one breath he tells me I’m stiff and going backwards then he measures & ROM is more than...

    At my 6 week post surgery appt the OS was thrilled, happiest I’ve seen him actually. I was at 90 degrees. He said I hit the 3 milestones after TKR. 1. 90 ROM 2. Incision completely closed 3. Walking unassisted (I’d been doing that already for 2 weeks) I see him again 8/18. He didn’t say what...

    Hubster had a right carpal tunnel release surgery this morning. He’s doing fantastic. He even tied his shoes at the hospital. He is fighting me on the ice & keeping it raised above his heart. I had both R & L CTR back in 2002. I remember what not icing or elevating can do. He’s supposed to...

    Welcome & congratulations making it through with your new knee. Listen to these ladies, they are full of wonderful knowledge. Ice, ice, ice, rest then ice again.

    Today, one of the cool things he showed me, that worked for ME. When doing a heal slide. I’d slide until resistance, not pained. If I did 5-10 heal pumps I’d get an inch or two more slide. Strangest thing

    In this day we turn to the computer to look up so much without a thought. That’s what I did that day, but no more. My knee is what it is and going to be. I’m just along for the ride

    Thank you @Gardenplotter & @BBCG I’m not looking anything else up about pings or pains. My new physical therapist really is the best thing that’s happened since I’ve woke up from surgery. Today he saw firsthand how my muscles guard. I woke up today with REALLY good ROM for me. At PT it was...

    Thanks @Jockette. I tried looking it up online. What was coming up was TKR failure. . So I quickly closed it out and put on some music

    New place on knee heard from with a vengeance. Bottom/outer knee cap. Hurts like a darn. Icing & elevating & medicated. Just started about 3 hours ago and no signs of letting up. GRRRRRRRRRR. I got up to use the bathroom and the first step I screamed.

    I just realized today is the first time I’m not in pain after going to PT. Previously I’d hurt leaving, through all the next day So far, just a little sore & tired. Nothing Ice & sleep can’t fix!!

    @GiantFinnegan I watched new guy with his previous patient before me. I could here what he was saying. Totally clicked I’m sorry you haven’t found the right PT facility yet. YET, meaning you WILL find what works best for YOUR RECOVERY. Whether it’s a facility or coming up with your own...

    Jockette, Celle, Sisterpat, What a difference. Nite & day New PT dude Gerry is AWESOME I explained the torture at the last place. He could feel how much my muscles were guarding & worked to relax them. When I got there I was only able to bend to 60 degrees, at the end 82 ROM, with no pain...
