Quad stretch suggestions if can't bend knee comfortably?

I'm sidelined with a bad knee and have arthroscopic surgery scheduled for early December... My knee range of motion is greatly decreased to about 90 degrees max and getting less over time and my affected quad is just tightening up without any effective stretching, leading to even less range of motion. The knee's sore and stiff but not acutely/sharply painful.

Anyone have any suggestions for an effective quad stretch that doesn't involve torquing on the knee? I'm doing runner's lunges and hip flexor stretches from lunge position with back knee down, but it's not really getting the stretch into my quad.

Help?
