    Swimming can always be a good sport as it is less intensive on your body. Depending on your age you could also consider scouts or cadets either going or volunteering.
    Gaming groups can always be fun as you get to learn new games, meet new people and be a character who isn’t you.
    There’s also art or something crafty or models etc.
    Volunteering is also good as it gives you something to do whilst being rewarding.

    As I understood your trauma isn't a problem for other sports? I can recommend swimming too, also running, tennis, dancing and other sport games if they're ok of course for your knee. Walkings in your city, visiting various museums, galleries, attending concerts and festivals is a smashing idea too, personally I adore all these types of activities!
    Also when you're at home, you can read or even write your own stories, try to learn a foreign language (personally I started to learn Norwegian in my free time), listen to your favourite music (it's one of my the most favourite hobbies ever!) or play computer games. I can recommend different art activities too, especially drawing, handmade arts (I for example adore quilling), assembling wooden models https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...5/wood-trick-0 , calligraphy (it can be very interesting too), playing musical instruments, photography... There's really so many types of hobbies in fact
