Hello all, I had right patellofemoral replacement March 7, one night in the hospital. I haven’t had as much pain as I expected, and today almost none. I’m walking well with a cane and stairs are fine. I’m renting a vascutech machine which cools without ice and also provides compression, keeping my leg elevated on a 45 degree wedge pillow. I’m icing/elevating almost all of the time, but even so, my swelling keeps increasing. In appearance it’s only moderate, but it’s beginning to feel almost like my leg is in a cast. First time up on day of surgery I could straighten my leg completely and flexion was probably 110 (guessing). By next day PT measured extension 0, flexion 98. Today extension is still 0, but flexion is probably half what it was. I’ve given up the heel slides for now. I was given a few exercises to do at home, but no PT until after my two week check up. I’m wondering if there’s such a thing as over icing? I was told I didn’t have to limit icing time with this unit because it stays at 43 degrees. I ice over a pair of lightweight sweatpants. Could too much icing be causing this stiffness? I would love to hear how some of my fellow March surgeries are doing in these early days!
