I saw my orthopedist today for my 1 month post-op total knee surgery appointment. He said that I need to have a manipulation & it's going to be done on Tues (5/19). I don't disagree with him at all, I feel I should be making more progress.
I scar easily & we both think that this is why I'm not getting extension & flexion as quickly as we'd hoped.
What I want to know is ...WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER!? I will be going to PT 5 days a week, I know I'll be under anesthesia for the duration of the procedure, so I'm not worried about THAT part. But what about AFTER? Is it as painful as the knee replacement surgery itself!?
Any info would be greatly appreciated-the more prepared I can be the better! Even if it's scary, at least I can get my head together before hand.
Stay calm and carry on.
