Hi Fisher,

i am going to be doing ACI/HTO in the next few months. I was just curious if you have began running or doing any similar exercise yet at this stage in your recovery? I know results are different for everyone, but I am trying to prepare mentally for my slow return to sports & exercise.

Thanks,
Courtney

You're right to prepare for a slow recovery.  The phrase "it's a marathon not a sprint" would be very appropriate for ACI recovery, except for the fact that it'll be a while before you'll be doing either, so maybe "slow and steady wins the race" would be better.

I haven't been doing any running as part of my recovery yet (now 8 months since my ACI), but imagine it won't be long till I can do a bit of treadmill because I've been doing plenty of running in the shallow end of the swimming pool, and any time I've had to do a short dash (e.g. to catch a train that's about to leave) it's felt ok.

9 month check-up: 

Mr Briggs (surgeon) happy with the knee and the quad muscles. 

Sharp pain at ~30 degrees bend when weight bearing is still a mystery, although Tim mentioned a few things he thought it might be.  The 1-year scope is in June so he'll have a look then and see if he can see what's causing it.
