Hamstring Issue 3 Weeks Post Op
« on: January 02, 2014, 06:25:41 PM »
I received surgery on my acl about 3 weeks ago using the hamstring graft method. I am doing great and the knee feels wonderful but unfortunately I just injured my hamstring. I got about a foot of snow last night and had to shovel to get my car out of the driveway. While shoveling I slipped, and my right leg (leg that was operated on) slid backwards, forcing my hamstring to flex. Luckily I was waring my brace so my knee feels fine, but I did experience a pop on the right side of my hamstring, about half way up (right in the middle of the back of the knee and the buttcheek). It didn't hurt at the time but there is a sharp pain now whenever i put any sort of stretch on the hamstring, such as bending over. I have placed a call to the Ortho who performed the surgery but he is on vacation until Monday, can anyone who has had a similar experience give me an idea of what may have happened in the meantime? Did I tear the remaining ligament left in my hamstring? :(     I appreciate any insight.
