Knee surgery - Arthroscopy and infra patella tendon release, chondroplasty of the plicia, fatty pad removal.....

Yo yo mo fo' fo' show...

Day 5 After knee surgery - Arthroscopy, infra patella tendon release, chondroplasty of the plicia and full removal of the fatty pad......
Just a few questions to any bods who have experiences of post op pain....
Day 1 - 3 sore, but 100% improve of pre op pain on standing and climbing stairs etc etc etc.. ooww, minimum meds
Day 4 onset of cramping in quad on inner thigh... Tough night, comfy for only 1-2 mins in any position. max meds some relief... eventually, slept little woke early in agony
Day 5 sorry but shit..... meds not easing, but still only 10% of pre op pain, so kinda all good but shit.
Firstly,  (and the most important to me,.....  lifes about priorities), 
Q1.. whats the chances of returning to snowboarding and bmx'ing after op', 
Q2.. whats the best knee brace/support for extreme snowboarding, need freestyle options plus highspeed chatter/shock absorbing options, and reduce, or delay further impact damage.... probably 2 sep braces??
Q3.. BMX as above, but more impact/shock ab option poss 3 sep8 supports in total..
appreciate the risks involved but as injuries sustained in RTA + not my fault, still need to ride, its what i do, so obviously time, physio and recovery all dependant etc, but if any chance then i' be on a mountain somewhere or in a sk8 park on a vert ramp or in A&E...
Q4.. The original q admittedly, but heah Ride or Die...
so A- Quad pain and kind of cramping, knee end, is i'm assuming from the torniquet, feels like the best/worst dead leg sense i'v ever experienced - meds not soothed..... is this normal, am i over doing it...?
B - DVT? or other complication, should i be concerned..?
C - none med soothers - best results, ne hollistic rems that have helped, magnets or herbal/mineral benefits to be had, any other ideas on aiding recovery. reducing further problems with other knee, should i support the other one......
Big up the knee...... 
its amazing how much u knee'd them.... sorry
