How long for knee replacment recovery

I have had knee problems for the past 5 years and after 3 knee Arthoscopies on both knees have finally gone and had a knee replacment last week. I am wondering if I am expecting too much too soon, but I am amazed at the amount of pain I am still experiencing. I am wondering if I am comparing my recovery to the Artho surguries vs. the replament and not being realistic.

If any one can tell me their experiences and I would appreciate it.

How long before you used stairs?
Stayed on crutches
Needed pain killers
How bad was the PT.

Whatever info you have would be appreciated.

I am looking for the average stories, please no horror stories of what went wrong.
