Will my knee ever stop aching.
Yes, but it takes time. This is a recovery that requires you to exercise your patience muscle!
Remember, you are less than a month into this year long recovery. Aches and pains are a very normal part of this journey as your body heals.
I found this chart really helpful in understanding why it takes so long for the pain to disappear:
The best things that you can do are icing, elevating and taking pain relief medications on a regular schedule.
And be sure that you aren't doing too much too soon. If the pain increases after an activity, your knee is telling you it just isn't ready for that yet.
