ACL Reconstruction Patellar Tendon Graft 3 Weeks Post Op

ACL Reconstruction

I tore my ACL and meniscus about 3 months ago while travelling out outside the country. I was quickly arranged for an ACL restoration through Patellar Tendon Graft. My specialist was "old-fashioned" which was why he preferred this specific graft. My surgical treatment was outpatient, took a number of hours. Regrettably the surgeons had to remove 60% of my meniscus. Besides that, the surgical treatment was a big success. I used the CPM device every day for 2 weeks post op. I have the ability to flex my knee 115 degrees utilizing the CPM machine. I likewise use a 10 device which assists eliminate discomfort and swelling. I ice the area after every exercise. It has actually been 3 weeks post op and I am doing many weight bearing activities. I do lunges, crouches, weight shifts, leg lifts, and practice balancing. I am not taking any discomfort medications as I do not have any discomfort. I am able to drive an automated automobile, and spend a great deal of time on my feet throughout the day. I only use a brace at this point, although I do lots of exercises without it. By four weeks post op I need to have the ability to stroll regularly without any assistance. I feel my experience has actually been greatly favorable and rather "average" as far as the rate of recovery. Thanks for viewing!
