Congratulations you're now a member of the club. The pain is hideous, if you haven't experienced it it's not possible to imagine- for a long time but it does get better and so worth it. It's very strange to look down at my kneecap and see it's sitting dead center for the first time in memory. I won't need to wear a brace anymore for exercise. !! I hope you'll be as happy with your results as I and others have been. Just remember it does get better!
