When I had mine, I was off crutches and walking normally after about a week. You will do fine and be surprised at how quickly things will get better. Keep us posted on how you're doing.

Thanks everyone for the support and prognosis of a speedy recovery time from your own experience or observations. And Bucky, about that begging for recipes thing, you forget that I injured my knee in the first place by carrying you in the kitchen!!!
