    I haven’t done much of the exercises and walking. I had knee surgery March 4,2019. I’m on restrictions. I was on crutches for the first 2 weeks after surgery and now I’m able to walk with full weight. My knee is in a brace that keeps my leg straight without bending. My back has been doing well with this. I haven’t had much pain.

    as a dressmaker I find that standing more than 2-3 hours or sitting sewing for more than 2 hours makes my middle lower back ache to the point of not being able to do what I want or need to do
