this is my second knee replacement with a MRI measured and designed replacement everything went well with the right knee. the second knee was replaced with a new implant surgery as usual was a success. first week took pain reliever then stopped them as i noticed by exercising before bed the pain subsided. worked with pt. 3 1/2 weeks after i was off walker and cane and felt great and on the fourth week with PT my angle was 103. ( hard work) . the fifth week was a bummer as i felt pain all over the knee and i could not even reach the previous number ( 103) i made sure to share with pt and following his suggestion stopped exercising for 2 days and now i am back to it. i re stared from the very basics very slowly and kept on building to the bending of the knee i finally felt some relief.and tomorrow i working with pt to find a solution together. i did my best to take pain reliever as few as possible as it might give the wrong image of the problem to the pt the next day. i have an ok threshold of tolerance to pain thanks to breathing exercises (except dental?). let's hope tomorrow brings a better knee
