I'm down that I'll miss the Open this year, but I'll be there to support my boxmates in our competitions, and soon enough, I'll be prepping for fall comps myself, I hope.

Right now, the biggest challenge is finding the right dosage to stay ahead of the pain without becoming a drooling idiot. Also, I can't wait for a real shower.

I appreciate all of your comments, guys. I'm excited to see what happens when I come out of rehab and get to full power in 6 months.
I had knee surgery 9 months ago. The biggest piece of advice that I was given before my surgery was to listen to my physical therapist and do everything they tell you to the T. My neighbor had shoulder surgery the same time I had knee surgery and he took a lot longer to recover than I did, but, he has full range of motion ( most important) and continues to work on the strength. So...long story short, listen to the PTs and do the rehab religiously. Another guy I know cut his rehab short, since he was feeling "good" and he's had 2 more surgeries since then on the same knee...some guys never learn. Good luck.
