    full knee replacement

    I had a full knee replacement done last May the 7th. It's been quite a journey, ups and downs, but I found lately that my knee is very stiff/tight. I can still bend it but its like really tight. I have found that having massage on my legs and my knees has really helped but not understanding why all the sudden my knee is tight. I try and walk as much as I can, ride the bike, do the squats, stretches, bends, etc. I am having a possible partial knee replacement on my other knee. I sure hope that they don't see, when they go in and decide I need a full replacement. Partial would be just fine. Less staples and quicker recovery time from what I hear.
