4.5 months post op - mpfl reconstruction and graph
« on: July 26, 2014, 02:47:07 AM »
I am 4.5 months post op from  mpfl reconstruction and graph.  I finished up pt about 3 wks aho and range was at 143 at that time.  Still gaining strength in left quad from the surgery. I have full access to the gym and due to a high co pay was able to rehab in pt and at gym.  Still almost 5 months post op I'm still eerie w the knee, still swelling with lots of daily activity, pain by evening or a hard work out, and still a lot of stiffness.  My Ortho to me to lay off it till sept then could step it up w more strengthening exercises like trying to run, more lower body stuff. 

I'm trying but I'm but I'm but I'm not patient at all w the recovery.  Dr and pt told me will take probably a full 9-12 months to regain the quad and to lose the stiffness.  Which drives me insane lol I don't want to re injur it so I'm listening to my knee the best I can. 

Anyone else have this surgery where are u with post op recovery??
