Thanks for the add!!
I just had my third ACL reconstruction.
L knee- 2002. Tore ACL while swing dancing. That was a thing, remember? Patellar autograft secured with screws. Has been holding up great.
R knee- 2012. Tore ACL during karate high kick contest with my husband. Cadaver allograft that unbeknownst to anyone was ripping chronically. When it finally gave way two weeks ago, caused a medial basket handle meniscus tear.
R knee- 2018. I’m 18hrs post op from a quadricep autograft. Surgeon also re-drilled holes and filled in the older, abnormally large (17mm) with bone grafts to eventually fill in naturally. My nerve block is starting to wear off.
Thanks to everyone for sharing their stories!!
