Hi i am from uk, this is my second mfx performed yesterday firs one failed changed surgeons and hospitals. I had microfracture done on the femoral condyle. However i have a ruptured ACL cruciiate ligamament inkjury which cannot be repaired because of arthritis in knee.
Anyway 1st time at previous May 2010 hospital never gave me any crutches told to weight bare straight away ( No wonder it Failed)
Now to present op yesterday. The surgeon did the microfracture i have crutches but have been told for 6 weeks i am able to put 10 - 20kgs of weight on leg when using both crutches. It is hard to judge how much weight yiu put on so i just put my foot down but take as much weight as i can through crutches. I had a large are damaged.
It is a gamble, i have been told 50% chance of working. However i was lucky to be given this chance by surgeon, he wanted to TKR, i dont want that i love the gym and exercise.
So im not sure why you cant put any weight at all one. I hope u feel better soon
