About a month ago, I underwent a posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery, and the doctors fixed two screws in my body. The doctors gave me a knee brace after 15 days. When can I walk with the knee brace? When can I walk without the knee brace? Are the screws to be mandatorily removed in the future or will they be left there? Can I bear some weight on my knee? Can I join work again soon? I am a chartered accountant. After six weeks, can I walk with the help of a knee brace but without a walker? Please answer my queries. I have also attached my MRI reports for your reference.
