There are some great points here. I'm an active guy in his early 40's and already recovering from a knee surgery. Few things from my experience. Exercises and Physical Therapy is a MUST. Take it incredibly seriously, it will help you recover faster.
The other thing is that you need a good knee brace for support and protection if you plan on being active. I got mine from www.better-braces.com and love it. It provides stability but also flexibility now that I am active again. Hope that helps!
