6 months after surgery, new problem, left knee.
« on: July 06, 2005, 03:51:04 AM »
I had my ACL and both meniscus fixed 6 months ago. I've been riding my downhill bike again very aggressively for the past 3 months, jumping, doing big drops >10ft , even fell and jumped off the bike a few times with no problems what-so-ever (wearing my brace).
I got back in to soccer again and last sunday I kicked with my left alot (no brace). Monday my knee was sored to touch but I figured, " I should expect this", no bigggie, I can handle this. Wednesday, I had another game I wore my brace, and didn't even kick hard, just ran alot for the most part, cutting, etc.
I didn't fall, I didn't trip, and suddenly my knee just started hurting on the in-side. Thursday I couldn't put any pressure w/o experiencing pain.  My doctor said (over the phone) ," it's because you haven't used those muscles in 6 months, it will be ok".
It's a week later and I'm still in pain, hurts when I walk and it gets stiff after a few minutes on my feet.
My doctor is on vacation, what could this be? meniscus again?

Hey !!

If you haven't had any accident again, I'm pretty sure your doc is right in this. It will take some time to your leg get used to these movements again and meanwhile you are going to be sore afterwards. What you can do is ice afterwards and do stretching, maybe that will help. Try also kick with the ball by yourself a bite every day and do these movements you haven't done for a while.

Thanks Nettan.

Does anyone know if it's possible to tear your ACL post op  again w/o experiencing any swelling?
