Acl patella graft acl – nightmare recovery
Hi had an acl reconstruction done 18th december 2004 and what a nightmare recovery. I was kept on crutches for the first 10 weeks couldnt get extention or flexion and even now after 12 weeks it still isnt easy. I am off crutches but have a really bad limp, the knee is very stiff and painful and so with a builld up of scar tissue it is a constant battle to get mobility. Anyone out there that can give me any advice on how to increase both extention and bending (can only bend it to 110 degrees )and that is as far as it will go. I am constantly exercising almost every minute of every day but its hard going and very depressing.
