I,m back and feeling good after multi recon !!
« on: June 14, 2005, 11:13:10 PM »
Hi everyone,

Just a quick update, I had my 1st check up at 3 weeks today, my plaster came off , staples taken out and touch wood ! one very stable knee. It is solid ! I am fully weight bearing still on crutches whilst I restrenghten and regain confidence, but no brace ! Early days yet I know but for the 1st time in 4 years I have got full extension in my knee. Have got to work on flexion, this is my project for the next 3 weeks untill I see my OS  again oh and also he wants me down to one crutch only by then aswell !!

So I let you know whether I have achieved it in 3 weeks !
Wish me luck and that the healing continues to go well.

Hey congratulations! Having a positive attitude really makes a difference. Work on your flexion but don't forget about your extension, it's actually more important. I didn't know it at first and I ended up going through another surgery to regain it..
April 14th, 2004: Floor hockey accident, complete ACL tear (left knee).
June 11th, 2004: ACL reconstruction, patellar tendon autograft.
January 21st, 2005: Cyclops Lesion removal

Wow, that sounds serious -- glad to hear you are getting better!!!

Interestingely, I had a similar experience with the NHS. I had an injury and got treated as A&E -- ripped ACL, LCL, they thought my PCL was gone as well which howerver turned out to be okay. I also had a fracture in tibia plateau and ripped the biceps femoris tendon and ilio tibio band. I got transfered to Edinburgh and got operated a week after my injury (!) I had great support from the consultant and physios: 10 months after my injury I had a day out snowboarding (cautiously) and now I do quite a lot of sports again. Yesterday I had my first game of football (a full hour) -- knee was a bit sore but nothin to worry about.

So, I do hope your recovery will be go well and although your injury sounds really serious keep working on your physio (I did physio pretty much every day for 6 months and went to see a physio twice a week) that I think is the crux....

All the best,

6/4/04 Kiting accident: ACL, LCL, Biceps femoris tendon and Ilio tibia band ripped, fractured tibia below plateau.
14/4/04 OP: Reconstructing ACL, repairing  also the other damages
