Hi, Keith. I had my surgery May 5, 09. I started PT before I was off of crutches and was going 2X week until insurance coverage stopped at the beginning of October. I was getting a lot better after surgery. Then my knee started hurting again. I had another MRI at the end of September. The best news that came of that is that everything is intact from the surgery. My OATS was a success! Now my TCL is inflamed. Probably from me pushing myself too much. I have been working out six times a week, so I will be taking it easy the next couple weeks.
My tips include listening to your doctor, question anything you don't understand or if it doesn't sound right, and most importantly - don't push yourself too much.
