See a Therapist: There are a number of exercises to do after ACL reconstruction. It is very important, however, to implement a program in a structured fashion.

I have undergone an ACL replacemet surgery 3 months ago.I have been doing physiotheraphy for 2 & 1/2 months.I still get a pain in the back of the knee?
Not uncommon postop: Postoperative swelling within (effusion) and around the knee is not uncommon out to 3+ months after major acl reconstruction. It also depends upon the status of the remainder of your knee.

8-9 months: An acl revision is seldom as simple as a first time acl reconstruction, so rehab would often be a bit more guarded. However, given good graft fixation, and a well-performed procedure, the expected recovery should be the same. Expect 6-12 weeks for return to daily activities and 8-9 months ideally before return to cutting sports. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
