Set-back four months post ACL surgery
« on: March 15, 2006, 04:32:30 PM »
I had ACL recontruction in October and a successful rehabilitation.  After consulting with my surgeon a few weeks ago I returned to recreational basketball.  During the game I snapped the knee straight rather hard and felt some dull pain and trauma in the joint.  I stopped playing and since then I have gone back to strengthening the joint through resistance training at the health club.

However, I am still feel a tenderness when I straighten/lock the knee completely, and I am worried that I might have reinjured the joint in some way.  I have not gone back to see my surgeon because I was hoping the tenderness would go away.  It has been three weeks since I "tweeked" the knee and I wonder if I should continue to strengthen it at the gym or go immediately to see the surgeon.

Any ideas or advice on this kind of problem?  Thanks.

How are you on this thing... i had an ACLr 4 mths ago and 1 week ago I skidded and fell on my patella and patella tendon swelled. My OS told me graft was intact only fat pad bruised and patella tendon strained. and prolly hamstring strained. I cant straighten and bend much... but he said 2-3 weeks later it should be normal.

Hopefully things are going well for u now! :P
