knee rehab and shin splints

I went back to my ortho on Wednesday for my six week follow-up after lateral release surgery. He seemed fairly pleased with my progress. My range of motion is basically normal. There is still some swelling, but the ortho was not concerned about it. He said that the pain that I am having is most likely because of overuse.

While I was at his office, I asked him about pain that I have had in my lower left leg for about a year. He examined it and took x-rays to look for fractures. He did not see any stress fractures so he diagnosed me with shin splints. Before I was diagnosed with shin splints, I noticed that some of my PT exercises for my knee were making my lower leg hurt more. Has anyone else had shin pain while you were doing rehab for your knee? I can't stop the PT because my quad muscles aren't strong enough yet. I am worried that some of my exercises will make my shin issues worse than they already are.

Thank you for reading...I hope you can decipher my ramblings. Any advice would be appreciated!
