Cleo, thank you so much for coming back to update us and give others of us hope! I am at 8 weeks today and bend is in the high 80’s. They are talking MUA and I don’t want to do it. Your post has given me strength! Congratulations on all your progress, you are an inspiration! So happy for you :)

Anyway I just thought I would post so that anyone who is struggling knows that it is still possible to make progress a while past surgery. At 12 weeks my bend was 88.
Thanks for sharing this good experience @Cleo. It's important to understand that MUA is a needed treatment for a very small percentage of TKR patients. There are so many ways to get to full ROM over the year without aggressive treatment or torturous PT.
