Title: 6 months post allograft
Post by: Sam451 on June 05, 2012, 06:42:49 AM
Ok so it's been six months since my allograft and I am frustrated!!!  I can tell that my leg is getting stronger however I feel like I am going downhill. Every step I take hurts. Going up and down stairs is awful. My OS says the MRI shows everything looks good. The problem I have with that is that the 2 MRIs I had prior to any surgery showed only the MCL tear. Nothing was seen until they opened the knee up. I am not sure what to do. I am so fed up with being in pain. I want my life back!!!  If everything is ok than why am I in soooo much pain?
