Preparing for ACL recon with donor graft
« on: February 19, 2013, 04:48:20 AM »
I have scheduled knee surgery #3 next Thursday. In 2008 I had ACL recon with hamstring graft & meniscal repair, 2010 I had miniscal clean up. My graft failed and now they are going to do an ACL recon with a donor graft.

Questions is: What is the recovery like with a donor graft?

What is the typical time on crutches?


I did not have an easy recovery with the first ACL repair and have read that with donor it is different. Most the stuff I found on line was from Olympic athletes, I want to know more about recovery from a regular person.

Any help would be apreciated.  :D
