Pamela, a couple weeks after surgery is not very long to heal up. I was in PT for almost 2 months , 7 weeks before I got off the crutches for a simple trim. My OS told me that it was going to take time to heal. Everybody is different. Try to be patient. Ron

            I am having part of my meniscus removed next Monday, and I sure hope I won`t be on crutches that long.I am not good using crutches. : ) My Doctor gave me a 50 % chance of improvement. I have nerve pain if I move a certain way, and it stops me cold when it happens.  I figured at this point I had nothing to lose.
