I'm now 8 weeks post-op, begining putting weight on my leg for 2 weeks now. Making progress daily. Minor discomfort. Ready to get walking as soon as the doc says it's OK. He has said I can put as much weightg on it as I want, but I'm taking it easy. Not going to mess this up. I'm finding the muscles are the real pain, they and the ligaments have taken a while to calm down. I'm actually blown away that only 2 months after this huge surgery that I can do as much as I can. So far so good.
