Anyone have a slow recovery with knee replacements?

Still can’t bend knee. Flare ups are occurring more frequently. This is depressing!!

    Sorry you feel that your recovery from surgery is going slowly QTPie. If you had to temporarily discontinue medications for the surgery that may contribute to flares. I don’t know if your doctor has you doing physical therapy, but it can be helpful for many after surgery. This article from one of our contributors, who has had multiple replacements looks at the importance of rehab: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/the-importance-of-rehab/. Hopefully others can chime in with their experiences and thoughts. Remember to bring your concerns to your doctor. Best, Richard (RheumatoidArthritis.net Team)
