I don't know about your limitations with the knee or your angles. I ride duck anyway so I didn't have to adjust anything.
I was at the hill mid season and I spent 2 days riding switch. I started on the green runs and just slowly learned the motions all over. I still got on/off lifts goofy, not sure if you needed that info but there it is.
One thing I noticed I had to really concentrate on keeping my weight on my front foot. This helped a lot to engage the turns. Exaggerate your turns, this also helped me and as I got better I was able to tighten them up. I can now ride greens and blues, haven't tried blacks but that's fine. I am comfortable not riding switch on the blacks yet.
Hope this helps...
