Do PT: Make sure you are doing pt, need strong quads to keep patella aligned. Should discuss with your surgeon.

Rehab: It sounds as if you have a feeling of instability. This can be overcome with a strong rehab program and the possible addition of a brace. Ask your doctor what brace may be the best one for you. Of course, if you remain concerned about your symptoms, then either consult with your surgeon again or obtain a second opinion.
