24 Hours After Cadaver Graft Sugery
« on: November 02, 2005, 04:48:06 AM »
Hello All,

My surgery was yesterday and it went well.  I am a little sore but I am able to walk.  I started therapy today and I had my first doctors app.  My knee has very little swelling. I am a little tired but very little pain.

good on you!
I had mine on oct 24th, using a hamstring autograft. I was walking next day and it certainly felt good! I'm 9 days post op now and doing little walks every day, 20 mins or so. Got my forst PT since hospital today, although i've been doing the exercises they gave me before i left hospital.
Keep up with the exercises

Thank you all for your beautiful comments.  I feel really good right now.  I am ready to ditch my brace.  My second PT appointment is scheduled for today at 3:00pm eastern. 

At first I thought it was too soon after the surgery to start PT.  But now I understand why.
