Tricia, I did not have a drain tube and the knee was cptly wrapped.   I used 
the crutches for only a couple of days then used just1 for another couple only 
if I was walking a distance.   What was your injury?   Mine was a torn 
lateral meniscus which could not be repaired at my age do to lack of blood flow 
however younger ones are repaired.   I think it is difficult to compare unless the 
injury was identical & then age & bodies react differently.   Oh, yes, I am 
considerably older!   Medicare & my 2nd insurance paid 100%.
     I did sleep in a recliner for several days but didn't have anyone to 
wait on me.   I did keep ice on for a good deal of the time.   I haven't iced for 
the past 1 1/2 wks now.
