Hi everyone, this is my first post and I hope I’m doing this correctly. I had a total replacement of my right knee on 3/15/2023. I’m 53 years old. My recovery has been slow & painful but nothing that seems to be out of the ordinary. My last PT visit 5 days ago, he measured me at 100 flex upon arrival and then forcibly pushed me to 112 by the end. I was almost in tears. The next day I could hardly walk let alone do my home exercises and that’s been the case since. I’m back using a cane and taking oxy. So swollen no matter how much icing/elevating I’m doing. I’m upset because I feel like this will set me back and it just feels so counterproductive. I’m generally a happy positive person but this has me feeling really low and like I’m never going to get my life back :(. I don’t know where to go from here and I appreciate any advice your group has for me.
