Oooh Liri ... that stuff to clear out the innards is grim ... your OH has my sympathy
I'm back from the physio and the exercises are very do-able ... one is done sitting down and tightens the hamstrings which we are trying to train to take over from my anterior cruciate ligament. The other involves standing on tip toes as often as possible and holding the position. Also cycling with toe clips on the pedals will be good, using the toe clips to pull the pedals up rather than relying on just pushing down. I've not been cycling to the shops much this year 'cos of damaged shoulder and then broken foot ...
If the exercises don't do the trick and the knee still keeps dropping me on the ground they'll probably operate but it won't be fun and will involve a long recuperation
