banged knee after reconstruction have i damaged it
« on: August 22, 2008, 04:35:45 PM »
Hi I am really frustrated and recently got enraged about my newly operated knee, i had an hamstring autograft acl, allograft, lcl, and postero lateral corner reconstruction, i was in a rage and was sitting both knees bent at 90 degrees and just banged both of my hands down hard on each of my femurs near but not directly on the knee more on the upper leg.

I had my operation on the 12th of june 2008 so it 9 or 10 weeks ago , but was was just wandering could the impact of my hands effect the screws placed in my operated leg or effect the grafts in any way im really scared i have done something.

Might be a good idea to see your PT or OS that operated on you just to be on the safe side and to put your mind at ease.

any information would be fantastic thanks.
