Better yet, go see a sports medicine specialist who can help you decide when to return to activity. Many variables to consider. How "almost complete" is "almost complete"? In what sport do you participate? Most important, how is your pain control? Bottom line: go see your doc.

This is dependent on a few things including your physicians protocol, and quad strength. The protocol i follow begins light straight line jogging at three months post op. Consult with your physician and/or physical therapist.
