ACL reco, burning shin
« on: November 04, 2008, 07:59:50 AM »
I have pain in my shin from my right foot to 6 inches below my knee since 3 days after surgery.  It was the worst burning sensation, and worst pain, I have ever had.  4 days after my initial surgery, it looked like a deep bruise and was very sensitive to touch.  Does anybody know what this is caused by? I'm due up for my 2nd acl replacement on the same knee and I do not want to have the same complications as the first time.  Oh, and the pain is still there sometimes today (2 years post op) but it is dull now.  Still hurts occasionally but not as bad as it initially was.  Thanks for reading!
