Questions about ACL surgery
« on: December 20, 2007, 07:48:46 PM »
Hi everyone,

Ok, so I am going in for surgery to repair the ACL on the 3rd, but I am wondering what all they will get to "look at" while they are in there...?? See, the back and out side of my knee really still hurt, but the rest is feeling a lot better. OS confirmed ACL, MCL, and mensicus damage, but said nothing about the back of the knee or lateral side, which is what is bugging me so much. Will he look at all this when he is in there? Or should I call to discuss before the surgery? I am 8 weeks out from injury, so just really starting to get some pain relief..but the back of the knee and outside still really hurt.

Any input is much appreciated.

Every person is the creation of herself, the image of her own thinking and believing.
