I seem to have got recovery time way way out - now 13 weeks and any advice and comments would be appreciated . Allowing that everyone is different! 6:12 months?

    My physio says as long as it takes cos we are all different. Nurses post op reckoned this 6 weeks and 3 months stuff was misleading and only a vague guide to when steps forward might be more noticable. Surgeon suggested full knee strength as good as its going to get can take 12 to 18 months and depends on the state of rest of your joints. 6 weeks post op I know I am improving but theres a long way to go.
