Rehab schedules Trufit plugs v ACI
« on: September 03, 2008, 12:32:14 PM »

I just wondered whether anyone had any info on the rehab schedules for ACI compared with Trufit plugs.  I'm just wondering how long on crutches NWB, partial WB, intro to gym work etc.

I'm scheduled for either Trufit or ACI depending on what the surgeon sees when he goes in.  If suitable for Trufit then he'll go that route, if not then on to ACI (gets around the tricky job of deciding without knowing what is best).  In the meantime, I'm trying to prepare and plan the other part of my life (the one that most people think of) to ensure that I can continue studying and training.  Hence, it would help if there was some info on rehab periods.
