Posterior knee pain after ACL allograft
« on: September 03, 2017, 12:17:54 AM »
I had an ACL allograft, 30% of the medial meniscus taken out and the lateral meniscus was stitched back together 8 days ago. I am experiencing an intense pain in the back of my knee. This pain isn't all the time mainly when lifting my leg while laying down, picking my leg up to take a step, and occasionally it feels like a knife stabbing me without even moving. Any idea what it could be??? I don't have a follow up with my surgeon until Wednesday.

Could be blood rush/ due to bruising or it could be something potentially serious like a DVT. Get checked out at the ER (A&E) asap

Could I still get a DVT when I've been icing and using the compression things on my lower legs?

Potentially I guess. Ice doesn't stop blood clots as far as I know?

Get checked if concerned. Can you call the hospital where the op was done? What country are you in? Systems vary as to how address post op issues
