excellent post. That's the wisdom of 4 acl surgeries talking. I hope I never speak a sentence that has the phrase 'compared to my other recons'. 1 is more than enough.
I am 5 months out and almost released to sports. There was a point, that I felt like I was never going to be the same and couldn't imagine walking with a normal gate. I have to look back and laugh, because although I still have months if not more of work to be back to 'normal' its gone just as my doctor said and I am doing great. Funny how he never seemed worried about my concerns.
