Yeah, based on what I have read here I am concluding that the condition of the meniscus is a key variable in recovery time and protocol, along with the type of graft done. My dr. was happy because my acl injury was isolated without any collateral damage to other ligaments or the meniscus and I was a fit, motivated patient of a reasonably median age (46). He took pics and all during the procedure tho I'm not sure what he is using them for. Can't wait to see those
. If I can actually recognize it as my knee, I'll probly puke, lol.
The incisions have been giving me problems the last couple days but have calmed down considerably today and I am trying to get my gait more normal. I may not have completely lost my quads, but I can certainly see a noticeable difference in the operated leg, despite my best efforts. I got caught up on sleep last night but I still feel physically tired today - all pretty much as advertised.
