Yes this is no cake walk for sure. I’m 11 days out post op LTKR with Mako robotic assist. Experienced tremendous swelling of knee down thru lower leg and ankle. According to PT a lot of this is due to the surgical procedure with ROBOTIC MAKO. Bruising and black/blue becoming quite evident in lower leg throughout ankle/heel/foot. Using lots of ice packs and elevation. Ace wrap has helped reduce swelling abit. Nurse and PT are concerned about cellulitis in shin area due to swelling and sensitivity. DR called in10 day antibiotic course as preventative. Trying to keep up with the PT exercises but swelling has been an obstacle to obtaining ROM. I went from 63 to 82 this AM . DR set a 2 week post op goal of 90. Anyone use Arcadan gel as this was recommended for swelling and bruising by PT and Nurse?
