Brake pedal force (broken leg)

Does anyone know how much force is required on the brake pedal to stop an e91 in an emergency situation (full braking)? I drive a 2011 e91 mt and I broke my right tib and fib just below the knee back in September. After a somewhat complicated recovery I just got clearance from the doc to start weight bearing. 50% max for the next week then up to 100% w pain as my guide. Today I backed the car out of the garage w no problem. i could def. drive but don't quite feel comfortable enough w my leg for an emergency stop. So I am curious if anyone knows the #s req'd ? Dying to drive my car after 3 months out of commission!
