Knee Surgery Rehab
Where to start?
I'm a 32 year old Firefighter that had ACL reconstruction on my right knee 8 weeks ago. The graft was taken from my left patellar tendon because of a previous ACL reconstruction in my right knee had already used that one.
Surgery went well, woke up in recovery, they were discharging me helping move me to a wheelchair and the left leg buckled and I felt a pop! Uh-oh. Saw the doc the following morning, thinks I tore the patellar tendon, MRI confirms, in a cast on the left leg, and the immobilizer on the right (yup!)
Had surgery on the left leg 4 weeks ago, went well (no more injuries sustained at the hospital). Have been in a locked hinge brace since then, no bending, quad activation, etc. ACL rehab for right leg is going well.
I've got another 3 weeks of straight leg fun with the left, then the real fun (rehab) begins.
Question is, I've gone through ACL rehab before and know what to expect, but anyone know about patellar tendon rehab?
