thanks for the reply, it seems like you were able to start pt earlier. i was in the straight leg brace for 6 weeks, then started pt at about 7 weeks post op. it's going well i think..my knee is swollen and hard..but if is gradually bending ( with pain )..i'm at about 70 degrees.. and do lots of the pt exercises. my thought is that there is lots of scarring tissue grown in there and i have to massage it constantly to try to break it apart . like you did, i'm thinking i should be further along..and i'm working hard to try and get "there" quickly.
thanks for the "no pain-no jane " !! lol...i think about that when i'm sitting there at pt !!!
