Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

It is early days yet so pain/stiffness is to be expected. A recovery can take several weeks. Your physical therapy is very important as is keeping yourself active (but careful) when you're on your own. Be sure to rest the knee when you need to.
You are about two-three weeks out from a full recovery. Good luck!
