Here I am. I had a deformity that caused my knee caps to track to the outside. When I was a teenager they suggested surgery to stop my kneecaps from going out of joint. I decided against it due to the size of the scar. Pure vanity. I managed OK but as I got older the pain became worse. Then my excuse was that I couldn't take the time off work. Now retired, I decided to take the plunge. I was supposed to have a partial but when the surgeon got in there, the damage was more extensive so he did a TKR. O.K......that's the history. Surgery was Jan 15, 2019, three weeks ago. Incision is healing fine. I am having trouble with ROM. PT and surgeon are very aggressive when bending my knee. It hurts like crazy. They tell me I am at 80 deg but the pain starts at about 60 deg. I also have a lot of trouble with swelling. I elevate at night but about 45 min after getting up, the swelling comes back and my leg gets very tired. I am so glad I found this site. Please tell me if what I am experiencing is normal. I was beginning to feel like such a failure.
