    Doing little to no exercises, getting more painful, under knee cap, sides of knee, down shin upper thigh into groin. Looking ROM

    Cannot walk without cane. Entire leg hurting more each day. Never in my life have I looked forward to surgery. Told after hip replacement I would see a big improvement in my knee also. I hope so, totally frustrated at this point.
