Sorry blaze in response to your post, though it diffcult as the other knee needs the same procedure.

0. Can walk for at least 20 minutes
1. Can lock knees and stand
2. Bend to put socks on
3. Can get in and out of the car
4. Can stand up from a low chair
5. I still get stiff and pain from sititng for long periods, but thats no biggy and nothing like it was before
6. Can stand on that leg without pain
7. Can do the whole toes cleaning shower thing
8. Can do the stairs
9. Can't do nine, but never could
10. can kneel for a while without oain
11. Can't sqaut, but never could
12. Can sit with legs crossed
13/14. Still get pain and swelling, but greatly improved since op.
15. Improved range of motion
16. I can dance and run without thinking, for about 40 mins

I would say that my knee is more than 95% improved I can't image what life was like before.

Hope that helps.
