    Don't skimp on rehab, do what they tell you exactly as they tell you exactly when they tell you and you will be much better off.

    Re: ACL Reconstruction Surgery

    Based on what I've seen in the NFL if you take a bunch of PEDs you'll cut your recovery time in half.

    How old are you? Age can be a ***** on recovery.

    This I have had wrist surgery and back surgery. Didn't really do the PT on my wrist I should have and its slightly better than before surgery. Can't wait for Arthritis!! As far as my back goes I was much better it only rarely gets out of place anymore but still not perfect.

    Like they said do the PT!

    Re: ACL Reconstruction Surgery

    I am having surgery the 28th to do a total reconstruction of ACL and fix my meniscus. What type of graft are you doing? I am going to do the Patellar Tendon graft. From what I have read the first couple days after can be pretty rough. Sports surgeon told me crutches 4-6 weeks with a 6-9 month return to sports recovery.

    I'm 18 so I think it won't be as bad as it could be.

    They're doing the hamstring for me. I think I was told 6 weeks with the brace on, crutches gone whenever I can, and 3-6 months recovery for sports.

    Same thing with my wrist. I had surgery back in August, didn't really take the rehab all that seriously and now I'm back at PT again.

    Do as your therapist says and you should be fine. The first month or two will be a ***** but you'll be better off in the long run.
