Andrew, welcome "back". I have been wondering how you were faring.
I did read your full story. Your experience sounds not fun at all, and 
very different from the experiences I've heard from friends, family, and 
neighbors who've had their knee(s) replaced. I was also surprised to see 
what I surmise to be the staple line on your x-ray. The last knee 
replacement after effects that I have seen had a horizontal incision, 
and not nearly as many stitches/staples. It is fascinating how different 
these procedures can be depending on one's geographical and the "faulty 
part's" biological location.
Here's wishing you a very speedy recovery.
