Thanks for explaining the "Blue Block" torture....um...........PT method. Extension usually improves more slowly than flexion, and is achieved through normal daily activities. As a matter of fact, my extension is much better than my flexion, and I never did a single formal PT exercise after my revision. I followed the "Activity Progression" article and never did too much, or too little, at any given point in my recovery. My flexion is difficult due to continued (and very rare) swelling, but my extension is "fine" according to my OS and myself. If you make sure to not over do and not become a couch potato, spend a lot of time icing and elevating along with gradually increased ADLs as stated in your recovery articles, you will do great. You can't make your recovery go any faster than your knee and body allow, but you can slow things down by overdoing and keeping your knee angry, sore and swollen all the time. Just because your doctor fixed your knee does not mean he now owns said knee; on the contrary, it's YOUR knee, YOUR recovery and 100% YOUR choice as to how you wish to recover. You can listen to any advice you choose, then make your own decisions as to what you will and will not do. No one can dictate to you how you recover; many will give advice, but you are the owner of that brand new baby knee and only you make the decisions. Your doctor, your PT, your family, and Aunt Susie's nephew's neighbor's daughter-in-law's father can't decide for you-they can only give you their opinions and advice (which you don't even have to listen to); you make all final decisions. We here at BoneSmart have all been through knee surgery and know what worked, or didn't work, for us. We can give you our opinions and advice, and no matter which way you choose to go, will support you in your decisions, whether we chose a different route or not. That's because we know you have the right to accept and/or refuse all advice and suggestions for your recovery and we will support you no matter what.
