Well your experience sounds much better than mine Cari
Glad you aren't in too much pain.
I have exercises to do three times a day. Still can't move my lower leg forward and no hope of lifting it up. Tensing the muscles around my knee, or trying to lock my knee, is a great way to almost pass out. I'm walking better today, can get around the house without crutches, it's not pretty or fast but I get there. Still using one crutch when I am out of the house though.
My knee is giving way on me sometimes and my left knee, that's waiting for its own surgery, is really not happy about being used so much. It's giving way a fair bit and quite painful.
I plan on taking next week off work though I can do some work from home which is good as I am getting bored. Might return to work the week after. Just the thought of stepping up onto the bus and walking through the city makes me feel sick right now.
