6 weeks post TKR

Hello lovely people,

im just after a little advice please. I’m 6 wks post op TKR and also struggle with Fibromyalgia. My recovery has been slow and painful as pain has not been well controlled and I am unable to take anti-inflammatory medication due to gastritis and previous stomach ulcers.

my question is, how long do I have to achieve full extention of my knee and a 90 degree bend? My knee feels stiff and any gains made whilst exercising soon disappear when resting. I’m worried that scar tissue is preventing movement and that I may need to go back to theatre.

any advice will be great fully received, kind regards, A.
