A few days after the surgery I was all smiles, being able to walk without pain, even hike a little bit. But three weeks after surgery, I...

    Hello,I recently twisted my left knee while traveling in the bus. That's the last place I thought I'd get an injury but it happened. It was just a little twist, though, no serious strain on the knee, but I still fell mild pain and stiffness. I could go on with my rowing class later that day, but...
