Is It Normal To Have A Swollen Left Foot After A Acl Repair
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
it can be: It depends on what was done and how long you are following surgery. If you are in first few weeks following surgery it could related to a number of things, all likely to resolve with time and healing. If it is late, it could represent sensory nerve entrapment and might need to be evaluated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: This is common after this type of surgery. Popping that causes no pain is benign and can be ignored. Sometimes "popping" originating at the knee cap is due to muscle atrophy and improper tracking...This will get better with physical therapy. If you have concerns contact your surgeon. ...Read more

Yes and No: Numbness after inguinal and femoral hernia repair is common. However, the duration of numbness in and around the groin and inner thigh are dependent upon a key factor. That is, whether or not your surgeon purposefully divided a small nerve branch. Some surgeons do this to avoid the much worse complication of chronic pain. If your surgeon divided your nerve, you will always have numbness. ...Read more

Is it possible to need surgery for a 4 month old ankle sprain? It still hurts and pops a lot. Had X-ray 3 weeks after it only showed lateral swelling.
Yes: Ligamental injuries are thought to have three phases. An acute injury or inflammatory phase, a regenerative phase and a tissue remodeling phase. It is not uncommon for these injuries to take months to heal to their maximal function. In short, yes, it could be considered normal for your ankle to still be swollen. ...Read more

I had acl reconstruction and meniscus repair. Pain and swelling in knee was typical. No swelling at all in foot until ten days later. Is this normal?
Yes and no: It is not terribly uncommon for patients who have knee surgery to have swelling that then begins to track down into the ankle and foot. That being said, there are also people who have knee surgery that develop a blood clot, which can potentially be life threatening. So I would let your surgeon know immediately and follow his recommendations about whether your postoperative course is appropriate. ...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
Can ACL reconstruction screw up a nerve that causes foot pain? Oct 2013 I had it done and I still get really painful sensations in the foot sometimes
ACL Surgery: It is unlikely that your intermittent foot pain has been caused by ACL reconstruction in 2013. If a nerve was damaged at the time of surgery, the symptoms would be continuous, not intermittent. Some patients can develop a condition called chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS) after lower extremity surgery. It is more common in females with lower extremity trauma. Recommend evaluation for this ...Read more

I had right leg ACL reconstruction 3weeks ago (hamstring graft). Now I have nerve pain. Sharp shooting pain when inside of leg pressed + inside leg, shin, ankle hypersensitive and burning on touch?
Yes: Results of acl surgery are generally good but are influenced by overall condition of knee.

28 yr-old had ACL repair 10 years ago, and has felt leaning and off-balanced since a second surgery 5 yrs ago, and hopes to find a cure.....?
Full ortho eval: Initial radiographs would need to include weightbearing views: Bilateral standing AP, PA Rosenberg, full extension lateral and bilateral sunrise views. If any hint of poor alignment noted, then proceed with full hip-knee-ankle bilateral mechanical axis views to determine where weightbearing line from center of femoral head to ankle crosses at the knee joint. This will help determine if an osteotomy in such a young patient is indicated or should be considered. After imaging and a full examination for motion strength, and laxity, an MRI would help finalize any plans for potential surgery by delineating the degree of any cartilage or meniscal and ligamentous pathology. With history of hyperextension, a definite concern is whether posterolateral corner (LCL, popliteus and popliteofibular ligament) is also involved or injured/loose. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers
It depends: It depends on a host of factors. Some important factors are the pre- surgical condition of your quads and hamstrings, your overall general conditioning, whether this was an isolated injury or whether other structures (e.G pcl, medial meniscus, etc.) were also injured, amount of post-op swelling. There are many others. Range often as quick as 10 weeks or as long as 6 months. ...Read more
