Thanks for the encouragment. I saw my dr today and he was pleased with my progress-said I was a great patient to obey the NWB orders. I am hoping to be halfway thru that sentence, but no guarantees! I will continue to "be good"--it just isn't worth the risk.
It was interesting-I told my OS that I couldn't find much on the Internet regarding the microperforation-has said it is a pretty uncomon procedure and he knows the guy who first came up with the procedure. My OS said I was about the 25th person he has done the procedure on and he does a lot of knees!
I was really encouraged after my appointment today--maybe I will eventually be ok--probably a long haul--but at least I feel hopeful for the first time since my surgery.
