    GREAT!!!!!!!!!!  See...4-6 months does the trick.  Almost all people who try to return to work in 3 months have problems.  Yes there are exceptions but you did it right!  Now...

    Hope you did the muscle rebuild to get back the strength in your quads, glutes and core.  If you start experiencing any problems, it's most likely because you still need to rebuild those muscles to take the pressure off the joint.  Gotta keep doing the rebuild most of year 1.  Need all that strength back.  

    You've made a great start...keep it up...this is NOT over!!!!

    Congratulations......it does seem as if 4-6mths recovery is better than returning earlier & having problems. Now take it slowly leaving some energy for your exercises. Good luck x

    Good for you!  Just take it slow and know even tho you are back to work, you are still very much in the recovery process. Don’t overdo it and rest and ice at home when you can! Hope you continue to progress nicely

    Way to go !!!! That is absolutely wonderful now make sure you do not over do it. It may feel better but keep in mind your knee will let you know in no uncertain terms if you did too much. Glad your back to work.
