I am having my right knee replaced on Feb. 11. I had the other one done 11 years ago and I remember having to go to physical therapy 3 times a week and I remember it being quite rough and painful at most of the sessions. I was reading on here that all the physical therapy may not be necessary and my knee will "tell" me how far to bend it and work it. So, is physical therapy really not necessary and I will be fine and get full movement back if I just "listen" to my knee? Am I interpretating what I have read wrong? Thanks so much for your help on this wonderful site!
