Realistically, we can't really offer advice on recovery from an injury, especially given your medical history. Before buying braces, you need to consult with a doctor. An inappropriately fitted brace can actually weaken your knee! Your doctor can also give you a referral to a physical therapist who can give you a program for strengthening that knee without risking further injury.
