Anyone had one before? I'm 6 months post op and frustrated that I still don't have full strength back. I can't wear heels AT ALL and I can't run. I get a popping in my knee all the time too.
I've never had one, but you should try getting one of those rehab elastoc bands and do strengthening exercises with it!
I've been out of a leg brace since 2 months post op. People are telling me that's good and that for 6 months post op I'm ahead of the game, but it doesn't feel like it. I'm impatient though. I'm 4'11" and the Most I can press/lift/curl is 40lbs right now and I can't go longer than 3 miles on the elliptical and 1 mile on the stair climber. Running is completely out lol.
I have one but I feel like it's too wimpy and I'm not healing fast enough. They had me doing it in physical therapy 4x a week and I got irritated and stopped going lol.
Didnt have a ACL tear but i did tear my menincus and i was afraid of the surgery i had a really good doctor and once i was cleared to work out i opted to do my own physical therapy did a lot of leg extension with my brace it took some time to build my strength in my knee but through it all it went well best advice is to be patient you will struggle but you will also gain your strength back you might want to go back to your doctor who did your surgery to make sure all is well on the inside of your knee most important wear your brace!!
I had it torn 4 years ago . Waited almost 2 years for it to heal naturally but no avail. So I had to have acl reconstruction. And its quite frustrating first six months post surgery it'll take almost a year to completely recover so don't push it too hard. And if u still get popping in ur knee after surgery u should talk to ur doctor ASAP...;-)
