    TKR How long till I feel better and normal after TKR?

    I am currently in PT 2x a week, on the off days I do home exercises, my knee stays swollen, not as bad as surgery swollen, I ice 3 to 4 times a day and elevate . At night my knee gives me the biggest pains. I am afraid if I don't bend and extend I will head for a manipulation.
