S/p acl reconstruction with lateral release (rt)
« on: July 03, 2011, 08:37:27 AM »
I am on day # 4 post op. The pain is better but my knee is so weak. I tried not using crutches today, but only tolerated it for a few hours. I also had a partial menicus removed from the same knee 9 months ago. How long of a recovery am I looking at? It took me 6 weeks for the meniscus. I am a labor and delivery nurse and constantly on my feet. I'm 41 y/o female, workout core and light weights at the gym and recently took up biking prior to this surgery 3 months because of the torn acl they discovered during the last surgery.When would I also be able to drive?
