Jim, get well, but speaking from experience, do your physical therapy!

I broke my femur last year and most of the people in pt had replacement parts and were reluctant to do the exercises. That delays the healing.

On the other hand, I just renewed my digital subscription so I have plenty to read while riding the bike.

Best wishes for a good recovery, Jim.

Several have urged you to do the physical therapy.  That will be the biggest factor in a good recovery.  I had a total knee replacement five years ago, and did all the P.T. prescribed, more frequently and for longer than prescribed.  As a result, I have a pain free knee with 98% of the natural rotation and bend.  I'm 74 and can climb up on my railroad layout with no difficulty, when I need to.  You can do this, too.

Embrace the pain, and later be delighted with the result.  Best wishes to you.

Get well Jim, the only shop owner that ever called me at 11 pm because I left an inquiry if he had something in stock or if he was getting it. I picked up the phone on the first ring so no one else in the house would wake up. I heard "Hi this is Jim from my train shop, how much you looking to spend and how soon do you want it".
