I am 6 months post TKR and I have less flexion now than I did at my 6 week followup which is causing me pain. I stretch 5 days a week plus do strengthening exercises and am still not getting better. My surgeon estimated me at about 95 flexion. He said if I do not get more flexion by my 1 year check up I will need more surgery to clean out my scar tissue Previously I have had 2 ACL reconstructions and 3 or 4 scopes to clean out the arthritis so I was told that I am predisposed to adhesion problems due to my many surgeries. Does anyone have any suggestions??View Thread
Thanks chigirl, I will look into the stem cell replacement. Where did you find that info? I am only 47 years old and have been dealing with my knee problems since I was 20 years old after a skiing injury. This is all very frustrating to me!View Thread
