Full recovery from: this procedure may take up to 6 to 12 months to heal fully. You may be on crutches for 6-12 weeks. I'm not sure when you submitted your question, but you may have had the surgery 11+ months ago now. If you just have a little pain and some clicking, that could well be considered normal. Mention it to you orthopedic surgeon the next time you see her/him in follow-up. Stay well:)
