    TKR 1 year anniversary, continued pain, seeking 2nd opinion

    Has anyone had lysis of adhesions after more than a year? How did it go?

    TKR 1 year anniversary, continued pain, seeking 2nd opinion

    Well, not very good news from OS today. He said, it is what it is. He didn't recommend doing a lysis if adhesions because of the risk if infection or damage to the appliance. He also said it usually only adds about 5 degrees to flexion and wasn't worth the risk. He said if I want to try it, he'd...

    TKR 1 year anniversary, continued pain, seeking 2nd opinion

    Moderators, will you please change my thread name to "One year anniversary with continued pain and seeking second opinion?" Today marks my one year. I am still having pain after about 5,000 steps and have to take a break. Standing for periods over several minutes also causes pain and swelling...

    TKR 1 year anniversary, continued pain, seeking 2nd opinion

    Hello moderators. Could you please change my thread title to "hypertrophic/keloid lady with ongoing stiffness and pain?" Had follow up with my OS who indicated he thinks this is what is contributing to my loss of function with my new knee. He's hoping I can get to 105 in January and thinks I...

    TKR 1 year anniversary, continued pain, seeking 2nd opinion

    Yes, I've seen those before. This is just incredibly frustrating and sometimes it helps to commiserate with those who are "in the know." Guess I just need to keep the faith and/or accept.

    Thanks. I've actually gotten to 97/-4 since going to PT. Just wishing I could do a bit more.

    TKR 1 year anniversary, continued pain, seeking 2nd opinion

    Hello. I am curious about MUA, but have not had one. I am 8 months post-op today and still having difficulty with ROM and tightness. Wondering if it would help, but not seeing many people having it at this late stage. Also curious about dry needling and am talking to my OT about trying it...

    TKR 1 year anniversary, continued pain, seeking 2nd opinion

    Greetings from Texas! Well, I started back to PT today. Sadly, my numbers were 80/10 at the start and increased only to 85/7 after my therapist worked on my knee. I do like him and he was very gentle and a great listener. He thinks he can help me and I'm going to continue to go twice per week...

    TKR One Year Post Surgery

    Thank you for the update. To hear that it does get better gives me such hope. I really appreciate the Bonesmart crew and all of the brave folks willing to share the highs and lows of this monster procedure.

    TKR 1 year anniversary, continued pain, seeking 2nd opinion

    Hello all. Just about 7 months now on the 9th. I saw my OS this week for xrays and follow up. My xrays look good, but I was told that I would not gain any further flexion. According to them, everyone who stopped PT during the pandemic is having issues with stiffness. I am having a little less...

    TKR 1 year anniversary, continued pain, seeking 2nd opinion

    @Starsfan22 thanks for your comments. I'm so glad I found you guys here. No one else could understand how this feels except another "new" knee buddy. I will continue to be patient. Hope all is going well for you.

    TKR 1 year anniversary, continued pain, seeking 2nd opinion

    Six months out now. Some things haven't changed. As soon as I get up, I'm very stiff. I sort of limp until my knee loosens a bit and then I can walk. The other thing that starts as soon as I get up is swelling. Yep, I'm still having swelling all around my knee. The tight band feeling is also...

    TKR 1 year anniversary, continued pain, seeking 2nd opinion

    Hello all. Just thought I'd check in. I was 5 months out on August 9th. At least I'm at the point where I'm counting months and not weeks. Ha! :egypdance:I still have swelling and stiffness every day. As soon as I stand up and start moving, the swelling starts. I'm not going to PT. I do my ADLs...

    TKR 8 months after TKR

    I too was told that if I "didn't push through the pain" I would need an MUA. At just a week after surgery, I was so sore and swollen from PT they thought I had a DVT. An $200 xray proved I didn't and I ended up stopping PT after 3 weeks. I am now almost 5 months from surgery and seeing many...

    TKR 1 year anniversary, continued pain, seeking 2nd opinion

    Thanks for your input everyone. The being patient is so tough right now, but I will continue to work on it. As far as ADLs, I cook my meals, shower, some days do light cleaning or laundry and that's about it. I am sorry to vent. It does feel so reassuring to hear from you all because my mind...

    TKR 1 year anniversary, continued pain, seeking 2nd opinion

    Hello. Today is 16 weeks for my new knee. I'm only taking Tylenol very sporadically, but icing and elevating often daily. I am stiff in the mornings and start swelling as soon as I stand up. By afternoon, I am pretty swollen and sore. I'm doing ADLs, taking short walks, and driving short...

    PKR One Year Update

    You are rocking it in my opinion!! Hearing you talk about your progress makes me so happy for you. I also makes me wonder if I should give PT another try. I'm still not able to walk briskly or straighten my leg completely. I hope you continue to make excellent progress. High five!!:yes!:

    TKR 1 year anniversary, continued pain, seeking 2nd opinion

    I did it! I am so glad you all gave me a few tips. I was able to drive around my neighborhood for the first time today. You were right. Getting in and out was the hardest part. I don't think I can go very far, but short trips will be nice. I'm at 14 weeks now and still swelling and feeling the...

    TKR 1 year anniversary, continued pain, seeking 2nd opinion

    Thanks for the tips everybody! I will let you know how it goes. I knew I would be a slow healer. The PT I worked with before my surgery said I probably waited too long. I had a medial meniscus repair in 2014. Then I had injections of synvisc every six months for 5 years. By the time I had...
