    TKR misskitty's new knee

    I had a Left TKR January 7th, then a MUA on Feb 28th. I ended up dropping PT at 104. I got tired of the forcing of the knee at every PT visit. My leg has seemed to get worse. I do my exercises at home and at work. But the past 3 weeks I have been having a clicking or popping when I bend my...

    TKR misskitty's new knee

    I have not been posting since trying to recoop from my MUA. I am now at 106 and still going to therapy 3 times a week. My next office visit is April 10th. I have been cut back on pain medication to NORCO 5/325 which is somewhat of a joke as far as pain medication. I my leg seems to constantly...

    Hi hHilltop, I can't recall where I saw story of other MUA's. I think there should be a column for MUA's and revisions. I noticed I am not the only one that can't sleep tonite:tantrum: Can't seem to get in a comfortable position.

    TKR On the other side!

    I had my MUA February 28th. I went to therapy for 8:00 the next morning and I made it to 100. Before I had been stuck at 95. Now I have dropped back to 95. Therapy has been very bad. It's like the therapist has gotten very push happy with my knee. I am back to tears everytime I leave. :boohoo...

    TKR misskitty's new knee

    The pain is different, I don't have that tight rubber band feeling at the top of my knee like I use to. I have more of a sore feeling like you would get after working out. Even though I am only at 100 and can walk with more ease. When I woke up after the MUA I felt more pain then I did after the...

    TKR misskitty's new knee

    Thanks for the encouragement. The next few therapy sessions are going to be painfull. They keep telling me I don't want the manipulation to be for nothing. I am thinking about taking next week of from work so I can put all my energy into therapy. I can ride backwards on the bike but not forward...

    TKR misskitty's new knee

    OS says he thinks this is the golden time to do the MUA. That if we wait longer it may become more difficult. Quote"This is my Golden Time to do MUA". He feels with the therapy I have had I should be further along. I have not been progressing alot at therapy. I go 3 times a week and the...

    TKR misskitty's new knee

    It has been a while since I have updated you all on how I am doing. Out patient therapy is so much better then in home therapy. Don't get me wrong it hurts, but no where near the pain I had with the therapist I had at home. I enjoy the bike and the weights but you really feel it the next day...

    TKR misskitty's new knee

    Thanks everyone for your encouragement. I spoke to the office of PT and explained whats been going on. They are sending a new PT starting tomorrow. I don't like to complain but this seemed to be getting out of hand. I did my excercises on my own today without any pain. Sometimes you have to speak up

    Hey Fernie, You know I don't really know how many staples he used. If I had to guess I would say maybe 12. Thanks for your kind words.

    I wish my PT would check out this website. They want me to do sets of 10 x3 on all my excercises now. I just can't do do it all. I am not lazy and do my excercises daily by myself when they are not here but when they come it always seems to end in much pain and me crying. I tell them it is...
