    Hi bev

    As you said it's going to take time.

    after my op there was little or no swelling and I didn't need pain killers so I went out walking right from the off.

    The heel-toe the physios tell you to concentrate on isn't as easy as it sounds.

    Good luck and take your time

      No haven't but it's a thought thank you. Just I seem still to walk with a limp above the knee. With no pain as such regards Bev
