I wasn't clear, in my question the first time
This is my second ACL recon - I did my L knee in '05 and will be doing the R knee next week. One of the things I found was that my OS wouldn't let me ride the stationary bike this time. Last time he had me riding it every day, even at PT. He said he wanted to give my mcl a chance to heal before surgery and the bike wouldn't help with that. I'm really hoping he lets me ride after surgery, it's one of the things I really like.
I'll keep you posted and good luck with your recovery, it sounds like you're on the right path!
As one of my other friends on the board put it - 4 more sleeps until surgery!
All the best,
