Title: ACL operation decision when to have it
Post by: jojo123 on April 29, 2016, 01:40:10 PM
I have decided to have an ACL hamstring reconstruction.  My dilemma is if to have it done before I go away in 10 weeks.  Would I be fit enough 8 weeks post operation to sit on a plane for 9.5 hours and do lots of walking while away for 12 days?

Personally I'd wait especially if you can take the time off work post holiday

Perhaps discuss with your physiotherapist whether a support would be sensible while walking if the knee is unstable to avoid any potential damage to the knee, especially bony surfaces
