Wildthing: Yes, I had my ski accident just a few weeks after yours and was making the reconstruction decision right around the same time you were. Had my ACLr in late May.
I'm sorry to hear about the job, house, car. Must be very difficult! But glad that you're able to devote yourself to your recovery and finding some satisfaction in it. I have to admit that I've really enjoyed my time at the gym as well. I've never been very consistent about going to the gym, but have enjoyed going to the gym everyday, working hard, seeing progress.
Are you still seeing a physical therapist? If so, good to ask them about the hamstring. Probably, you pulled it a bit and they can give you some stretches to do. I've had several muscle strains since my surgery--hip flexor and am currently dealing with IT band problems. You want to catch them a bit early so they don't become chronic and get in the way of your continued rehab for your knee.
Hope the hammy feels better soon! Molly
