<p>&#160; &#160; &#160; New to this site and wasn't sure which category to post this in.&#160; Anyways, I had a tibial avulsion fracture and meniscus tear back in May of this year (5/21/2017) while riding dirt bikes.&#160; After doing about 3 weeks of physical therapy I had my first operation (6/12/2017).&#160; The doctor was able to suture the bone fragment back down to my shin bone and then sewed my meniscus tear back together.&#160; I then began physical therapy a week later.&#160; It was then that I realized my knee had completely stiffened up due to scar tissue.&#160; My ROM was only about 15-35 and was very painful.&#160; A few failed weeks of trying to work it out in physical therapy led to a Manipulation under Anesthesia and lysis of adhesions through my original surgery wounds.&#160; I am now 6 months post op and my knee is doing much better than it was, but still not where I want it to be.&#160; My ROM is about 8-125.&#160; It causes me to walk with a limp and still have pain doing pretty simple activities.&#160; My knee is constantly popping throughout the day and stiffens up pretty bad if I skip a day of exercises.&#160; I am wondering if anyone on here has suffered from the same injury, and if so what was your outcome?&#160; I am worried that I won't be able to get back to riding or even doing some more simple activities.&#160; I try and go to the gym Monday through Friday where I contue my exercises that I learned in therapy.&#160; I also ride a stationary bike for 15-20 minutes.&#160; Any adive/experiences are helpful. Thanks&#160; &#160; &#160;</p>

5 days post op ACL surgery - strange horrible pain

Posted: Jul 16, 2018
I'm 12 years post op, but I remember that pain. I stretched out the percocet and vicodin for about 1 or 1.5 weeks I think. It prevented pain, but I couldn't poop for a week.  Maybe they can ...
