      Speak to your physio about it. All recoveries are different, but I think locking is unusual. Three weeks is really very early and you have a long way to go, but don't worry with patience physio, exercise and use of ice you will get there. Use your medication to control pain, don't 'be brave' and put up with pain you wont be doing yourself any favours.
