Post-op MCL.How long NWB?
« on: January 21, 2006, 12:51:26 PM »
Hi
I am nearly 6 weeks post-op MCL surgery does anyone no how long it takes for the brace to be removed,and also for weight to be applied?MY ROM is fixed at 30-90 and i am achieving between 80-90.
I dont seem to be getting any answers from my PT she seems a bit unsure about the rehab for this surgery.
Any advice will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Hello, is'nt this up to your OS that treated you? I would have thought that 6 weeks is about the time but maybe you need to get a firm decision from your OS/Doctor. Did you have a MCL reconstruction?

Hi
I had an MCL advancement where they cut the ligament and tightened it by 2cm.
