2 months ago I had my acl reconstruction on my right knee using hamstring. everything was going on very well: I could bend my knee all the way, had done 7 sessions of heavy phisiotherapy.
Today as I was descending the stairs, my left ankle felt very shaky and I almost fell. and by almost I mean I squated down all the way, bending my right knee fully and it hurt to the extenct that I screamed. but soon after (like 2-3 seconds) pain disappeared. I soon returned home and iced my knee.
the immediate difference was that when I straightened my knee, I felt discomfort. before, I didn't. Also, now more than 12 hours have passed since the "fall". When I straighten my knee, I don't feel discomfort anymore, but when I hang it, or give it an extra push to straighten, I feel a little discomfort (similar to one after I had after my surgery).
Also, my knee is a bit swollen. I called my doctor immediately and he said wait for 2 days, if discomfort persists, wait for another day. If it still continues, do MRI. if discomfort disappears, continue your rehab as planned.
Now why I'm writing this post is because I'm scared of my future. I don't feel any pain right now but I'm very scared and I wanted to share my sorrows with you. Have you seen stuff like this? Is probability of extending my rehab high? Or do you think I will need surgery once more?
