2 Year Post ACL Surgery Limping
« on: April 02, 2018, 01:58:00 AM »
Hey All,

    I've really been trying to find similar instances and or a solution to the issue I've been dealing with. I had ACL Surgery on my left leg 6/20/2016 in which I took a graft from my hamstring. I waited 10 months before returning to playing flag football in May of 2017.  I don't feel any true limitations to me playing or any pain while playing.

Quite noticeably and not to my knowledge my teammates would ask me if I was okay because I can be seen visibly limping on my left leg. I chalked this up as to still getting back into it and maybe at some point when I got my leg strength underneath me this would disappear. I'm still limping to this date and a majority of the time I do limp will be during games, after games or whenever I am exerting my knee in a moderate to intense manner. I don't know if anyone else has experienced this? Is this a result of inflammation impacting my range of motion on the leg? My ortho hasn't noted any limitations to my ROM, and I am able to do full extension of my leg. I have noticed as of late that I get a little bit of resistance after my flag football games in my left leg to do a full extension as I have to kind've push through so to say or fight through some pain to extend. I haven't been able to monitor how often that happens or how it is.

If anyone can provide some insight and or similar situations that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you everyone.
