I switched to a Crossbow last season as well for the same reason. Was a tough decision at the time but I love the Archery season
and I won't look back ,general rule for the knee recovery is 12 weeks max so that puts right in the zone
for the opener.
Had my right knee replace in Jan. Not going to lie it SUCKED. But every day it's gets better. Best advice I can give you is Rehab-rehab-rehab. Wish you well
I had the left knee replaced in 2008, had some complications and that's why I waited so long to have the right one done.
The left knee is not like new (has limitations) but I am virtually pain free.
Your a old pro at this That was my big concern, Getting range of motion back. At rehab one guy had to go back under and 3 big goons bend his leg back and forth At first, Mine was so bad when i stood up I be on my toes. I had my wife sit on my knee 3-4 times a day! thank God she only weighs 110 lbs. worked
Are you getting a full knew replacement, or a partial replacement? The full knee replacement can be brutal and my dad was off of his feet for a good while after his was done. The partial replacement? I saw a lady who was back to work just 7 weeks after hers was done and looked completely fine.
Either way, best of luck in recovery and getting back out there this season.
