    but not to be so pessimistic, my knee surgery went very well. I asked the doc if I could get it on videotape and he said "sure just bring a tape" 17 minutes, in and out. I was standing on it that day videotaping my kids playing. everyone's knee "thing" is different though, so just be patient.

    If they go arthrosocpic, it will be in and out. They do it through tiny incisions.

    Updating for anyone who maybe interested.

    Still not sure what I did, but the RICE seems to have done the trick. I was able to do my normal daily walk of just over 2 miles on Tuesday at a 2.4 mph pace and then 3.2 mph pace the next day (my normal is 3.5-3.9, depending). I can now bend the knee with ease, though there is still slight twinges of pain from time to time, but only when the joint is stressed in a certain way. I have made a trip up to the store (0.6 mile r/t) without my brace on once, but think I will continue to use the brace "just in case" for longer distances for a while.
