Can't walk with only one leg. Gradually with a brace you can begin to get around.9/8/2012 at 06:30 AM

Surprisingly loud pop. After a month of physical therapy and using a knee brace, it popped again and I had to start all over. Used the knee brace for six weeks and slowly began to regain stability. Though the popping is loud and painful, the loss of using your leg and the fear of it happening again is worse.9/8/2012 at 06:21 AM
