In brief: Prob. not

Sorry to hear about having to undergo 2 acl surgeries.
Recovery in your case depends on a lot of different factors that are difficult to summarize in this format. Sometimes a second "acl surgery" recovery is a bit quicker esp.If an allograft is used and the 'tunnels' from the primary surgery were accurate.Having a good attitude is the most important... Best of luck!
