I'm sorry I did not: See this earlier. I had knee surgery a little over 2 months ago. It is scary, but the results far outweigh the pain which i was having before the surgery. Make sure to go to physical therapy, since it really helps to return to your prior level of functioning. (i wrote about my experiences on my blog, if you'd like to read more, let me know). I hope you are recovering well!
