I had ACL reconstruction 3 years a go on my left knee. I had got back into playing sport again full time but unfortunately just over 4 months a go the was a flash point and my knee began to hurt again.
My doctor and consultant suspected I may have ruptured my ACL again but the MRI scans did not show either way. For this reason I had an arthroscopy to look at the ACL.
The ACL was partially torn, the surgeon said he also cleaned up the knee and removed some fibres.
It is now 10 days post this arthroscopy and have a lot of hard swelling above the knee and still very little mobility. I am still having to take pain killers to control the pain and wonder how much longer this will go on for?
Is this normal? I expected to be up and walking without crutches a couple of days post the op?
Any help would be great.
