Oh my gosh. You are writing into a doctor column to ask if you should or should not follow the advice of your orthopedic surgeon? You surgeon is the person who knows the most about your injury, your surgery and the risks at this stage of the game.
Since none of the doctors responding to this column have examined you, i think the best advice you can be given is to follow your doctors advice. I know you may not be happy with this answer because you really want to play basket ball now; but by following your doctors advice it could prevent further complications down the road.
