ACL (its still hurting)
I braved it and went for my first run since having a total ACL recon in Sept 2004. I am hoping to start light training (football) shortly. However, although my knee is stable and the graft has taken well i get terrible burning pains either side of the knee cap. I recently saw a surgeon (who didnt perform the original op) who reckons he will remove one of the screws??? Will this effect the strength of the graft? Would appriciate any advice.
