Urgent help please! fall over 6 weeks after ACL operation
« on: December 04, 2014, 10:20:59 AM »
I did an ACL reconstruction with hamestring tendon graft,yesterday my surgeon visited me and told everything is fine.
Unluckily today I fell over in my office   ( a hanging wire grabbed my feet(is this term correct?) ) and after I had an immediate pain which went away in 2-3 minutes.
There is no bruise or swallow or anything else and almost no more pain after one hour. I am really stressed wether I have reteared the graft or not. I called my surgeon and the secretary told today he is in surgery and not available. how can I know if it is still ok or not?

P.s: after 2 hours slight pain in the bone under upper arthoroscopy incision ,

is it swollen? a lot?
is it in a significant amount of pain?
is your knee significantly unstable or loose?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, then something is wrong and you should be worried. RICE it and talk with your surgeon as soon as possible.
