    Three month post op. Complete flexion and extension. Pain free except for the knee cap area. Very tender underneath and around knee cap. Keeps me up at night. Can only lay in one position for a short amount of time. Any suggestions on the knee cap issue? Thanks!

    Yes. Said everything was great. In fact doesnt want me to work in flexion part at all. Said it was fine. Checked for stability in all directions and said good to go on activities. Just back off when I feel too much. He cautioned me on two things. One, do not ever go down on my new knee and rest...

    Little update. Having constipation issues. Even to the point where I have a little bloody mucus in my stool when it feels like I have to go. Any thoughts on this? Am I pushing too hard? Too long on hydrocodone(4 weeks)? I have been eating prunes and activa yogurt galore. Should I try...

    Two week check up. 85 degrees flexion. Full extension. Was hooing for 90 on flexion but just cannot get there. Hoping flexion doesn't become a problem. Bandage off and healing is great according to os. Soreness and swelling constant right above knee. . Mostly from an aggressive pt session...

    Thank you for leg dangling idea. I will try it. Had my fourth pt session today in 11 days since surgery on 9/30/21. Even though I felt bad coming in as I described in my first post they got me to 98 flexion. Felt like she (pt) was breaking my leg. Lol. Actually feels better tonight though. This...
