Re: POST=OP 7 WEEKS Encouragement Needed

your symptoms all sound similar to what i was going through 7 weeks post op, after retinaculum repair, vmo repair and advancement, chondroplasty and partial meniscectomy.  all those things are gradually going away with return of range of motion, breaking up of scar tissue and strengthening of quads through P/T.   try to stay positive and look for gradual progress, noticeable over weeks but not days.  even though recovery may seem far off, 7 weeks is not  long enough after surgery to become too discouraged - as long as you can make gradual progress.
