Its been 5 mths I still cant walk right. I was NWB up until 3wks ago. I had a cast on for 4wks , it came off 3wks ago. At first I noticed things improving, but dont seem to be anymore. I dont know why but sometimes my knee falls out of place it feels like. It does not feel good at all ! If anyone has a idea of what it is I am feeling when this happens let me know. ???
                   Thanks  JJ

If you are only 3 weeks into WB you are naturally going to feel like things are awkward.  It takes time to rebuild muscles to support the knee joint.  Are you getting PT.  I good therapist can not only help rebuild the muscles, but also reduce your anxiety.
