Hi Twinkletoes, I agree with Cynthia. At 3 months I felt I didn't want to be out in crowds, sit any length of time etc etc. Now at 4 months tomorrow I feel strong, walk all the time without any aids, walk up and down stairs holding onto the rail more for my peace of mind. I don't mind crowds - went to a wedding last weekend. Don't get so tired. BUT, I still don't think I'd like to sit in a theatre for a couple of hours yet, or anywhere else that I couldn't get up and walk around. So hang, in there. It does improve and you'll realise its all worthwhile. I do now feel I could face getting the other knee done, which I don't need yet but thought I'd pass that thought onto you. Take care.
