DAMAGED my new mpfl??
« on: December 20, 2012, 05:23:24 AM »
Recently got an mpfl recon along with other things. I tripped this morning and it feels like I stretched out my mpfl cadaver graft because now I have alot of pain and tenderness there ?really hoping I don't need another cadaver put in, cus I have loose ligaments all over and I finally thought this was fixed:(

I think you need to contact your OS about this (if you haven't already).  I'm sure that the grafts are put in secure enough (and are probably tight enough) to prevent it from stretching/tearing from a fall.

That stinks !  Maybe your doctor can sneak you in to take a look at it before Christmas.
I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon's knife or the chemist's drug.

I will not be ashamed to say "I know not", nor will I fail to call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed.
