      I am 14 weeks post op and am 72 and retired. I have a small business where I make and sell clothes for the American girl doll. I used to be able to sew 8 hours a day. Now I can't get past 2 hours without my knee completely stiffening and swelling. I do stop to stretch ever half hour or so but it doesn't seem to help. As soon as the swelling starts I find it difficult to bend my knee. I can't get past a 105 bend. I am getting very depressed and admire you for being able to go back to work and get on with your life.
