Standing on my own 2 feet (at last !)
6 weeks non-weight bearing.
That was the prescription given to allow my repaired meniscus time to heal up.
I scribbled a calendar onto my board and marked off the non-weight bearing days as they went by counting down from week 6(+) to week zero. Lots of red check marks.
Now, finally after nearly 2 months of standing around on my left leg, I've got the go ahead to start putting weight onto my right.
Baby steps at first.
Partial-weight bearing walking with 2 crutches. Scheduled time throughout the day standing and shifting partial weight on and off of the leg to get all the tissues and bones used to the stresses of use again so as to begin rebuilding themselves accordingly.
