Comment : Not impressed with lack of advice either!

Seems you get the same treatment as me. Noone tells you how to do anything or how to walk, what exercises etc. Then when you go to fracture clinic they say "why are you still on crutches" when they have not told you you can try to walk without them. Aaaaagh.
I am getting increasingly fed up with the NHS at the moment. I am not prepared to sit in pain and be disabled while waiting for them to tell me I am old enough for a new knee. They are happy to do it on an 80 year old "because they won't use it". How wrong is that. I want quality of life now.
Sounds like you are making progress and getting out on the crutches anyway - so thats good news. Well done!
