Paging Dr. Newschoolers: Posterolateral reconstruction
Anyone had this done? I just had this surgery last week for an injury that was 15 months old. Doc said my ACL looked great, and he was surprised as the procedure usually accompanies a torn ACL.
Off pain meds in 2 days, and I can peg leg around now in a brace, supposedly it is a 3-4 month recovery.
Any insight would be appreciated as idk much what to expect during recovery. thanks fellas and ladies!

Looks like I'll just go and fuck myself 🤷♂️
I had to google the injury because I had no idea what it was. I know nothing about the recovery for this particular surgery but I have had a few knee surgeries in the past from both ACLs, 1 MCL, and some cartilage removed from the left knee. Count on the 3-4 month recovery before you return to any activity that includes the planting or pivoting of the knee. Listen to the doctors, PT is a huge help and you can learn some new routines to strengthen your knee to help avoid any future injuries. Good luck with the recovery, you will be walking normal before you know it. Im on week 12 of my right ACL surgery and I think I am ready to ski now but really, I have another 4-5 moths until I can do any activity related.
On a side note, I had my first knee surgery(left ACL) back in 1997 and the PT then is nothing like it is now. Todays doctors and knowledge compared to then and now is crazily different. Listen to them, they will steer you the right way. And no reason to go fuck yourself, get healed up so you can go fuck yourself up having fun.lol
Let me put my gloves on.
And my scrubs on.
Dr. NS to the rescue.
