I’m having a LTKR on Monday. Reality is setting in. :scaredycat:8 years ago I had my right knee replaced. It’s pretty good but was a bit of a problem recovery that ended with a manipulation. But by about 6 months in everything settled down and I gained great extension. My bend was 110, it might be more now I can’t remember anymore lol. I can do what I need to do so I’m happy with it. So I’m praying for a much better recovery this time. Changed doctors. My neighbor used this Doctor and she did so well. I know that doesn’t mean my recovery will be the same but a lot of what he does makes so much more sense to me. I won’t be using the motion machine. He wants you to get up and walk every 2 hours while awake, ice, elevate and rest. She was at 120 in 3 weeks with good extension Asking for prayer that there are no complications and my recovery goes smoothly. Thanks
