Which means ... I no longer need the leg brace! I'm actually allowed to walk around without my knee locked! I don't have to stump from point A to point B! Yay! 
Of course, it's still going to be quite a while before I'm back to full strength and agility. For that matter, it'll be a while before I feel comfortable walking without my trekking pole as a balancing aid.
And, alas, I'll no longer have the leg brace to act as an automatic conversation starter. Oh, shucks.

 Without any corresponding jumping up and down, alas. The knee's not in that good shape yet.
