Keep with it: 100 degrees is ok. It is more important to have full extension. Whatever you had pre-surgery for flexion is often what you have post surgery +10-15 degrees. So if you had 100 degrees of flexion prior to surgery don't expect more than 110 or so. Don't get more surgery if you don't have to. ...Read more
