Hi. New to this but wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with arthrofibrosis after tkr? What has been your experience? I am almost 10 months po. Thanks!!
Personally, I agree with this. Sometimes it’s good to just let things settle for now and let healing continue. Some doctors are too quick to rush in and try another procedure.Current dr feels it would be to risky to do anymore major surgery at this time due to all the trauma me knee has been through.
Scar tissue is another operative word and many people, including medical professionals, use it too freely. Often, especially in the beginning, it’s more likely swelling, rather than adhesions. (adhesions and scar tissue are two different things. )You also need to have a pt that is well trained in scar tissue and techniques.
I'm sorry to hear how many problems you've had with your poor knee. If you can remember them, please will you list your knee surgeries and their dates, so we can add them to your signature.This upcoming surgery will be my 15th on my right knee.
Bionickneegirl,I also have RA, fibromyalgia, Rsd, which further complicate my case.
