New Knee News

In three weeks the swelling should be gone and my range of motion back and I go back for a recheck with the surgeon and to schedule an ACL recosntruction. They do it out-patient and depending on which procedure I get done I could be back in good form before 2012. Now I just need to read everything I can about the difference between a hamstring autograft and a bone patellar bone autograft. Anyone had either?

Jacob had a hamstring autograph when he ruptured his ACL. It was either that or cadaver. Because it was his own tissue, there was no rejection. he healed quickly just had phantom cramps from time to time where the missing hamstring was taken from.

Thanks DD. From what I gather, "tendonitis" is inevitable with either.
