I just talked with my therapist about it. He said it’s probably swelling and people don’t realize this is a major surgery. You won’t have your new normal for up to a year. I asked him if it could be scar tissue. He said it could but you’ve got good movement so he doesn’t think that it is. He had them fo ultrasound on it to try and heal the tissue or if it is scar tissue maybe break it up some. Also showed me how to rub it at home to try and loosen things up.Summer, I experience exactly what you describe..and it prevents the knee from completely flexing...I will say the numbsess / tightness has lessened on the exterior side of knee, while bottom and medial side is still numb and tight...I also feel a bruise like condition on the medial side as well....icing has not done anything for this...best of luck...
On a good note.
I drove to PT today
I touched the wall with my knees while pushing forward in a wheelchair
And most of all my extension is at 0, straight leg and my flexion is at 115
I’m doing good. The only thing I really want is the pressure of that band around my kneecap to go away.
