thank you to everyone for your support & encouragement. I'm still scared witless about this after all the pain of the replacement surgery. It's all been like childbirth -- something you get yourself into & have to go through the eventual end no matter how much it might hurt -- so I'm going to try & stay positive & optimistic & hope that it won't be as dreadful as I'm imagining.

I'll be sure to post as soon as I'm up to it & let everyone know how it went. At least I'll be finally ahead of the curve in recovery!

Stay calm and carry on.

Thank you LadyGee, I really appreciate your candor & am especially happy to hear that it wasn't too horribly painful. I stopped by your SP page to ask more questions.

In the meantime ... THANK YOU! emoticon

Stay calm and carry on.

Hi there. I know from experience how scared you are right now but don't be. I had to have a manipulation and it was not as painful as the surgery. I had the surgery on Tuesday and was back at PT on Thursday. I had to go every day for 2 weeks. The improvement I made after the manipulation was extreme. I was getting no where before. As far as painful, it really wasn't for me. J

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

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.

Thank you!!!

Stay calm and carry on.
