ACL reconstruction
« on: September 15, 2014, 05:25:51 AM »
Just went to the surgeon and I am getting my ACL reconstruction on Thursday. This surgeon is a top surgeon as a trauma surgeon and does a fair few ACL reconstruction . A lot of experience.
What puzzle me a bit from what I read is that he will put me in a cast for the first week after the operation which I have not heard before. Having said that it made sense when he explained it as he mentioned the first week you tend to have spasum and it is better to have your knee immobilised. Anyone had this type of experience ?
