My dad broke his pelvis when he crashed into a dog on a bicycle..

It took him about 3 months to be able to walk without crutches( I think) and he did physical therapy exercises all the time(which I think sped up the strengthening process)  

It took him much longer to walk without a weird limp but he was mobile by then.

Best of luck to you and your boyfriend

aww thanks   i hope he is able to walk soon ,he is such a crab.  i hope  you can get help for your knees. but you could have an infection  throughout your knees   possibly from not being  treated. this is just a guess
