It is still early in your healing and I'm sure you have read that it can take up to a year to heal. It has been 2.5 years for me and I still get stiff of a morning but once I start moving around, the stiffness eases. I was at the 'why did I do this" stage but remembered back to not being about to go up or down stairs without pain so consider the stiffness a little easier to handle.
Hang in there and continue to stretch....it does get easier over time and you get to where you don't notice it as much. Best of luck and thank you for updating us!

Patience is one of the hardest things put up with this recovery. I was right there with you. What helped me through it was to celebrate each tiny improvement and during those bad down days, to look back at those tiny improvements and the joy they gave me at the time.
