Bilateral lateral release - how long until...
« on: July 10, 2007, 10:43:32 AM »
I had a lateral release performed on my left knee on March 20 and on my right knee 5 weeks ago.  I'm a vet and unfortunately most of my patients are quite close to the ground ;)  I was just wondering for people who've had this surgery, how long was it until you could squat down or kneel?  Before I had the right knee done, I still couldn't kneel down for pain in my left knee.  I just wanted some idea of how long this may go on for, as it's really going to affect my work.
