I purposely reverted mine to default values and it loaded the save fine with 5/36 so he's sporting defaults on that (it was saved outdoors).
Welcome buddy, but yah you may find your not out of the woods yet, the save took a pretty long time to load so if you know about say some giant cache of objects somewhere on the map you'd left behind or something like that I'd go creatively clean that up or any other known locations to try and reduce how much its trying to load. I've also heard tales that the Brotherhood's general area is just a nasty thing to load in general.
Uh oh, I was recently arrested in Solitude for 'doing something', not going to say what, since it's a spoiler, but anyway, once I came out of jail, I found that I was over encumbered by a lot for some reason, so my only choice was to drop a hell of a lot of items where I was standing, never realised that would make a huge difference. I guess I'll have to go and pick it all up again
. At least I can play skyrim again
