Good day, everybody!

I had my ACL reconstruction surgery using ST+G tendons 6 years ago. As of right now G tendon has completely regrown and attached to Pes Anserinus by itself, while ST is still dangling inside my thigh (when I contract my ST muscle I can visually see the muscle belly gathering next to by buttock).

So, the question is: can harvested Semitendinosus be attached back to Pes Anserinus surgically?
I'm having a revision surgery soon and I was wondering if I should ask my doctor to try attaching it back to original spot.

If you have any thoughts about it, they would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you!
