Had surgery yesterday. Ended up with the hamstring graft. Surgery went well, and I started physcal therapy today. Mostly getting swelling down and extension back in the leg. A little bit of strengthening to get the quads firing again. The pain comes and goes, but I am try to take as few of the meds as possible. I can walk with crutches putting a decent amount of weight on the leg. Thanks for everyone's advice and encouragment. It has helped me keep my moral up to know others have had the same problem and came back to full strength. Both my doctor and PTs have an aggresive recovery strategy, which I am happy about. I would much rather be pushing through pain than laying around on the couch (though I have done plenty of that too). Thanks again to everyones thoughts and advice.
