Does Acl Reconstruction Cause Pain In Hamstring
Because an acl (anterior cruciate ligament) cannot heal itself on its own, an acl is "reconstructed" by placing a graft tendon substitute (from your own or donor cadaver tendon) placed into tunnels made in the original acl position, and fixed in place with screws, buttons, or other fixation device. The body then replaces the cells and structure of the graft over 6-8 months, ...Read more

Continue Rehab: This can be normal, although it is rather uncommon, following hamstring harvest for acl reconstruction.

If this persists prominent hardware or another diagnosis should be considered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My boyfriend had an ACL reconstruction a few months ago with a hamstring graft. His friends have signed him up for a bungee jump. Is this wise?
Wise? No.: I am the wrong person to answer this question, because I am a chicken. There are risks inherent in bungee jumping independent of an ACL reconstruction. With the ACL construction in mind, what kind of activity is your boyfriend engaged in now? If he is finished with his physical therapy and he has full return of function, the operation may not be a factor anymore. But why risk it? ...Read more

For a non-competitive athlete, is a patellar graft or a hamstring graft most effective for an ACL reconstruction?
Acl tear: I would recommed a hamstring graft although the patella graft would work well too.

ACL reconstruction 2 wks ago using hamstring graft. Today I had intense sharp pain in my hamstring followed by dull constant ache. Thoughts?
Tendon rupture: The ACL tendon graft harvesting is a blind procedure that ends up narrowing the remaining tendon. The narrowed tendon may tear causing a sharp pain. The post-traumatic bleeding could explain the ache since blood, outside of its vessels is an irritant. Look for tell-tale bruising in the sore area. Let you surgeon know. ...Read more
Hello, Had an acl reconstruction with hamstring 1.5 years ago. skied yesterday and today knee is painful going up/down stairs. not swollen. retorn?
Likely not..: The only way you can re-tear an ACL is with an injury that you will compare to the first time you tore the ACL. It is not uncommon for someone even at a year out to have some pain after athletics. Remember, you likely have not skied since prior to the surgery so this is a new stress on your knee. If a knee swells it is a bad sign; yours in not so don't worry, but see your MD if it persists. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

NOT AS PREDICTED: Your recovery is slow at best, but not necessarily an area of worry, unless there is a problem with your femoral nerve.
