Brandon, are you equipped with any kind of brace for your knee? Is it your right or your left?
I've been using a brace bought in a drug store which has one flat plastic stay sewn into a sleeve on either side of the joint. It is elastic and about eight-ten inches long. It gives me the help I need to weight that leg when moving up or sideways.
The bottom line is that it works for me. I wear it over the knee which had ACL in 1979; and since it works well, I'm looking to get a neoprene sleeve for the other one, which is now going out slowly.
I've used those when I played a lot of racquetball way back when, and they gave me the ability to think about the game, not the pain. It may be of use to you to check into these.
I'm stoked to hear that you and Audrey may get to share a rope, dude!
