My pain levels have been pretty good most of the time. Just taking the occasional Panadol, mostly at night when my knee is really tired. My surgeon was Clem McCormick at Mercy Hospital. Mostly doing okay but OS wants me to drop crutches tomorrow when I'm two weeks. Feeling a bit nervous about that although I seem to be getting around okay with the brace now. Just have to go slowly.
A change of mindset can make a world of difference with the exercises. It's still early days but I can already see there are going to lots of highs and lows over the next few months.
