In brief: Follow protocol

Success of micro fracture strongly depends on proper reason for doing a micro fracture, proper surgical technique and rehab protocol.
Depending on what was micro fractured, the rehab will vary. It may include non weight bearing or weight bearing, bracing and use of a continuous passive machine (cpm) for range of motion of the knee. Talk to your surgeon.

In brief: Listen

It is most important to closely adhere to the recommendations of your surgeon.
This might include a period of limited weight bearing, continuous passive motion or use of an unloader knee brace to name a few methods that may be employed.
