I know your post a couple of weeks ago, but the response from your 3 week check up about being behind is not helpful and they should know better. The forum has always said and it is true, the road to recovery is not a one size fits all. I have also had such negative messages and finally have a PT that only provides me with in depth information about what is going on inside with recovery but a step by step approach that is tailored to my specific needs and is POSITIVE. I haven't read the rest of the thread yet, but thought I would throw out my experience if it helps. The take home message I guess for me is to feel empowered to ask questions and demand information that will improve my outcomes. Easier said than done.Hi I went to 3 wk appt this morning and the Dr. said patients are at 100 ROM by now, you're behind. I was 90 today and 92 is my best. I was told when you come at 6wks if you're not 112 we will do surgery to bend knee for you. My swelling is why I can't bend and it's from doing too much. He said it's a challenging period and I need to push through. My husband went with me and he walked away with you need to be 120 in 3wks and I'm going to need to do better. How can I when knee swells so much which decreases my ROM. I did switch to a cane which is good need! Yay me!
