Two years since surgery and I'm still happy!  I still think of the knee everyday, but there are hours that pass when I don't.

I've been going to yoga again and doing OK!  I still can't get heel to butt, which makes kneeling difficult, but I can do reasonable version of child's pose, my former favorite.  My hamstring on my injured leg is much looser than on my unaffected leg.  My hamstring really compensated for all those months when I could not bend my knee.  I'd like more symmetry, but I can't get the hamstring on my unaffected leg to stretch out (yet).

I'm working on strength with leg presses.  If I put my hand over my knee while I press, I can feel nasty crackling, popping, and whooshing.  These are not present in my unaffected knee.  In general, I don't have much pain.  There is pain under the kneecap sometimes, but I can live with it.

On to year 3!

Three years since surgery and things are great!  I had a baby this year and my knee barely affected my pregnancy at all!  I can't kneel comfortably, but I can do everything else that I want.  I think having this little baby will be good therapy too - since there is a good deal of squatting involved!

Sarah,

Do you still monitor this thread? I am in a similiar situation with you and very frustrated...I recently had surgery with Dr. Shelbourne 6 weeks ago.

Hi Mark,

I didn't get your post until just now... I hope you are doing better.  Still looking to talk?
