Knee Flexibility After a TKR

Hi my favorite readers! I’ve been receiving numerous inquiries from a variety of readers regarding knee flexibility after undergoing a total knee replacement. It seems that not having much is a common occurrence. Anyways, I agree with this and wanted to share some insight.

My knee flexibility has been a source of concern since my tkr, also. I was told by my doctor prior to surgery that my flexibility would be about the same after my tkr as before and to be prepared for that. Before my tkr, as previously mentioned in a variety of my posts, my flexibility was not good. See, I’ve had scar tissue hanging around for 30+ years from previous injuries and surgeries. My main concern about having a tkr was to improve functioning, including the capability of walking. I wanted to walk and function without excruciating pain. The flexibility was not an issue. Ok..

Upon presenting the issue to my doctor last month, I was asked again what it was prior to the surgery. I stated “about the same”. And..I was told that’s average. “Let’s see how much you have. Bend your knee as far as possible,” I heard. So, I did…the result…93 degrees. “Can you climb stairs?” I heard. “Yes, but it takes time and is not a pretty sight,” I replied.

The 93 degrees is after exercising diligently everyday, too. It’s not like I sit around and do nothing. So, I live with a 93-degree flexibility in my tkr knee. I’m not complaining, just sharing with others going through the same thing.

Hope this helps others going through the same thing. Keep truckin’!
