    Make sure you don't have a clot I was given the go ahead to bear weight and the first 2 days were agony, is your leg red, hot or swollen.

    Just make sure because immobility is fertile ground for blood clot.

    Also why haven't they addressed your knee? Did you hurt both at the same time ?
