I had a total knee replacement and extensive mcl repair on 06-06-06. My recovery is moving comaparable slow. I am having a very difficult time trying to flex my knee, this is becoming very depressing. Has anyone else gone through same and if so what was your recovery time. Perhaps my expectations are unrealistic. Please share your experiences with me. Also, has anyone had an anesthetic manipulation. For the first 15 days after surgery nothing was done to this knee because the surgeon and the doctor at the rehab hospital did not communicate well. Your input would be greatly appreciated, I would like to see a light at the end of tunnel.
