I'm 43 yrs old and live in the USA and this is the only good forum sight I could find. So 8 weeks out and I still can't bend my knee when walking because of the pain. It hurts from my knee cap to my foot. I can't stand without pain, just like before my surgery. I can get to 130 degrees and 0 going straight but my scar always feels like it's going to rip open. Still have trouble sleeping, stairs I can't do normal but I can ride the bike for 15 min. I can't walk too long either. I must confess I don't do my exercises at home, only when at therapy. I used the walker for a week and never used crutches. I drove after 4 weeks. It's like I'm ahead in some things but behind in others. My pain is constant and im off all meds. My knee feels worse than before surgery and it's frustrating. I'm off ice and use heat, ice seems to make it worse.i hope I did make a huge mistake having the surgery.
