Hi all-

I had my ACL repaired this Wednesday using a hamstring graft. I was doing fine on crutches and feeling okay before the nerve block wore off, but the past three days I have been getting a pinching sensation near the kneecap and especially when up and walking on crutches (even without putting weight on the bad leg). I called my doctor, but haven't heard back and am not going to PT until Wednesday.

Anyone have a similar experience or know what this is? Any advice appreciated as I am a student in classes and getting around is essential right now!
