Just thought I would do a 3 year update
To be honest I have not really given my knee much thought but the other day my brother-in-law fell and damaged his knee cap and is now using the same initial brace I wore plus crutches for 6 weeks and it reminded me of my knee.
Things are going great - still doing my martial arts training and also doing a very aggressive workout program called 'Insanity'. I've also been coaching basketball, soccer and martial arts and my knee doesn't hold me back at all.
I hope everyone is recovering well - keep at it if if you are struggling!!
