I have a question regarding post-knee surgery recovery...I plan to have knee surgery early right when summer starts and I want to plan to go to school in the summer...maybe after a week I have the surgery, will I be able to go to school on crutches...? Or is it recommended to stay in bed all day for months...I understand I won't be athletic for a while but will I ever be the same again...after rehab and constand knee brace wearing? Will the surgery now cause future knee problems for me when I am older older? I can't believe I tore ligiments in my knee...I am so... thank you for your time and answers for these questions...If I have anymore after you reply to this message, can I e-mail again with additional questions or should I e-mail somewhere else... thanks again.
