    TKR Rockgirl4's Recovery---already full of surprises.

    ...out and finally don't think about my knee any longer unless I need it to bend more (I'll always have only 95 degrees flexion due to arthrofibrosis from my MACI surgeries in 2015-2016), but at least there's no pain. I still have some nerve impingement and zingers down my shin because of true...

    TKR 11+ Months out---still lack basic ROM

    ...beautiful Whidbey Island. My Health Care Providers have been in Seattle. What is the proven method for determining you have TKR Arthrofibrosis? I didn't have an infection, not to much pain now, don't have that strong feeling like a spider web is wrapped around the knee. Have had three...

    TKR 11+ Months out---still lack basic ROM

    You mentioned that you previously had a diagnosis of arthrofibrosis. If this is the case, it certainly could be holding you back. Perhaps you should consider trying to find a surgeon who specializes in patients with this condition. Unfortunately there are not a lot and you might have to...

    ...time to get my prescriptions filled on the way home. I'm especially concerned at how they're trying to scare me about adhesions and arthrofibrosis. Here is the paragraph: Arthrofibrosis: Arthrofibrosis is mainly something we worry about in our total knee replacements. Arthrofibrosis is a...

    Bilateral TKR Anxious about upcoming MUA

    Let me explain adhesions or arthrofibrosis. It's white, like cartilage, and so imagine, as in my case in 2010, a 1/4" band tethering the patellar area with the femur. Every time we do PT with those adhesions in there, structures are being pulled, and that's going to result in pain. So it's...

    Bilateral TKR Anxious about upcoming MUA

    ...and they don't want any forceful bending. And yet I've reached 90 now. Please do message me if you would like more support. My arthrofibrosis turned out to be super aggressive and the MUA worked only briefly and ultimately the scar tissue was removed arthroscopically. I did a TON of...

    TKR Arthofibrois right knee

    I developed a very aggressive arthrofibrosis after my first TKR and ended up having arthroscopic removal of scar tissue. I had had the MUA but the adhesions recurred within days. I did end up with pretty good ROM but didn't pass 90 degrees until about a month after they arthroscopically removed...

    TKR Suggestions needed for “tight band” feeling

    ...sure. Anyway - there's a Wall St. Journal article on Dr. Finn & a couple others working on how to determine AF pre-disposition & solutions so definitely a step in the right direction.
