increased Swelling and pain, wk 4 post-ACL
« on: October 31, 2008, 12:52:39 PM »
Hi, just trying to see if there are any similar situations going on out there as to what I am experiencing.

I'm at week 4 of my post ACL reconstruction/meniscus removal/MCL repair (r) surgery recovery and things have been going smoothly. However tues. night I went out for dinner and spent roughly 2.5 hours sitting upright in a chair which previously hadn't been an issue. Everything seemed fine, until I woke up wednesday mornign to my knee extremely swollen and in a large amout of pain (8/10). I assume I have just maybe tweaked or overdone it a little since I wasen't vigouris in my movements. Is this a common occurance? Is there any threat that I re-injured it? CAn I expect more imflammations (after this hopefully goes away)? aNy idea what may have caused this? Any thoughts or advice would be great,
