11 days post acl and meniscus surgery
« on: April 15, 2014, 09:57:44 PM »
Hello, I am 17 years old and just had arthroscopic surgery on my left knee to reconstruct my acl and repair my meniscus.  I tore my acl, mcl and meniscus back in November at cheerleading practice and just had surgery now.  In that time my mcl was able to heal itself.  I started walking 9 days after my surgery but I seem to be having a lot of pain behind and around my knee cap when trying to straighten it.  Is this common?  I also have been wearing a Zimmer splint and I was wondering how long most people wore theirs for.  Any thoughts?
