Knee surgery

Survived ACL reconstruction yesterday. No driving until at least the 11th :(. Start pt Thursday (actually did some tonight with my wife as she is a pt). So far so good I am even walking with crutches on day 1

Good luck and do what the dr's tell ya. I had arthroscopic left knee surgery in Sept and was back to work in 2 weeks. Did 100% what that dr. suggested. Knee is 100% better than what was wrong with it and no more pain!

What happened to your knee? Does it involve arrows?

I had knee surgery just over 4 years ago and it feels so much better than before. I found the hardest part was going down a flight of stairs for the first time on the crutches, had to take a leap of faith. Work hard at the physio, it pays off in the end.........best of luck with your recovery.

Crap I don't have an incision like that

2 holes and an incision as about an inch long (haven't seen it yet).

What did you have done?

I had the surgery and its not terrible. Congrats on our recovery as the first few days suck. I would suggest you do all the stretches and therapy as it has been 4 years and I would say my knee is 95%. It would be 100% if I would have kept with the therapy. Good luck

I wish you the best and will be praying for you.

I had my ACL and MCL done at the same time. I misunderstood the tech when he described the use of the CPM machine and starting the day after the surgery I was increasing the motion by 1 degree an hour all day long. Within three days I had maxed out the motion of the CPM. On day 4 I went for my followup, and the doctor took me off crutches. He had me walking without the brace at home and with the brace everywhere else. I was driving within a week and have had a great recovery. On week 3 I went to PT and they did the tests and I mad already surpassed what the Houston Rockets team considers 27 week post op motion and strength. I am going to chalk this up to God for his healing and making me misunderstand the CPM instructions!

You will be very glad you had the surgery. I waited 4 years after my injury and am kicking myself to this day for waiting.

I didn't go with the cpm machine. Long story short all the studies and data out there show no added improvement over a 6 wk period for ACL's

I am already walking on it (with crutches) able to do toe rolls easily, and also tighten my quad and lift the knee

I have pt tomorrow and hopefully I get out of this massive brace

The doctor fitted me for one of these braces. It is wonderful.

What did you have done?


Ryan
I had the Fulkerson procedure done, basically a slice of the tibia bone is cut away and relocated to the left or right and pinned in place. I still have arthritis in both of my knees (35 years delivering mail) but I no longer get sharp pain when I pivot the wrong way on my knee.

As long as I can push in the clutch pedal I'm happy.

Damn, Orthopaedic surgery has come a long way... I was 18 when I first tore up my knee racing motorcycles...

Military Hospital, I was an air force dependant in an army hospital, and the chief surgeon was also air force...

Two weeks in the hospital, 7 months in a hinge cast, and I wore a lennox hill knee brace for several years... I've had 5 tune ups since then, for bone spurs and worn cartilage... and one additional new injury about 8 months ago... same knee... so 7 surgeries in total to my left knee..

Several docs have mentioned they would like to do a knee replacement, but in my line of work, that would signal the end... So, I tolerate it and carry on for now...

Good Luck with the recovery and do what that PT, your wife, instructs...
