Hi - I stumbled on this website today. Wow wish I had found it before my surgery so much great information. My LTKR was May 6. I left the hospital May 7 with 95 degree bend, on a walker, no issues doind stairs. In home PT started the next by. By Friday my flexion was 64 degrees, massive continued swelling. Spent the weekend with an upset stomach and could barely eat all weekend. Was miserable, doing PT exercises and not progressing. Monday and Tuesday PT, pain, increase swelling, extreme increased in pain at night. Called my doctor for follow up advice on the PT and it seems he can't even remember what he told me in the hospital. 8| Now I am reading the protocol here and thinking I have screwed everything up!! Reading about recovery in the UK and wishing I had had my surgery there fhs. My PT person is happy to have me sobbing during PT and tells me I will have an increase in swelling the next day. None of this makes any sense to me. Further I broke both legs in college - both tibia and fibia - which is part of the problem with the knee. Some of the bruising has settled around that scar plus pain in the bones there. This knee used to hyper extend due to that extended every step I took basically - any time it hit full extension. I have alot of pain behind the knee when I'm straight and a little bend gives it relief. I'd love any feedback or thoughts any one has. And thanks to the many stories I have already read so helpful!! Really appreciate this site!
