Hi loz, long time no talk,eh?

My knee is good, in fact it has beared up very well thus far, and am still very much working on it still to keep it like this at 18 months post op. As you know its the rehab that has gone on before that dictates the health of the knee and health and fitness overall. I still have slight crepitus but nothing that disturbs the right knee's biomechanics and general function.
How is your knee loz and feens?

Very helpful list.

I too had a hamstring graft so am going to work alot on that area. They don't feel too sore so far (day 4 post op).....

On the cardio front pre my op I did a lot on fixed "spinning" bikes where you can really crank up the resistance and also "climb" whilst out of the seat. Not sure what impact this will have on hamstrings but keen to give it a go.
2006 April 1 skiing - big air, big crash, rescued off mountain. Terrible triad as a result (acl rupture, bucket tear in miniscus, medial ligament tear).
Jan 07 - ACLr (hamstring). Surgeon "discovered" a tear in the posterior horn previous missed.

spoke to my physio about this. he said that if your technique was correct i.e. you keep your heel down throughout the pedal stroke then there is relatively little impact upon the knee - other than articulating it. It works quads and hamstrings almost exclusively.

I was doing this about 4 months after an athrospcopy to repair a meniscus tear, but at that time without an ACL and it was fine.

I had to report back on the use of the foam roller to loosen up the IT Band.

There are several stretches to get the IT loose. For me, the foam roller rolling over the outer thigh (about 30 seconds) between hip and top of knee helps a lot. (another feeny idea!)

I was stretching and lite-jogging, then felt some tendonitis, when I got home I used the foam roller (in addition to other stretching), within an hour, my knee "clunked", like a knuckle crack, but, no tendonitis following day.

Foam roller IT Band stretch is now part of my ever increasing stretch routine.
