Major step today!!!!

So after tearing my ACL on Dec 16th of last year and having a patellar autograft on April 18th, and getting my surgeon's OK yesterday, I ran today for the first time since my injury!!!! :firej ump:

Nothing real fantastic but holy crap am I outta shape.....

All treadmill work.....walked 4min @ 4.5mph, ran 1min at 7.5mph x 4 cycles. I made it through and felt a bit stronger and more confident each running interval.

Home alone as the wife and daughters are shopping so sharing with you guys....just emailed my PT, too.

Sitting with the ice pump running to make sure I don't swell up!!

Doc thinks it is very realistic that I can return to playing soccer for our January season.

Also thinks it is realistic for me to be waterskiing then!!!! Might have to head to FL

Hang in there. Rehab rehab rehab. I lost my acl and 75% meniscus in 9-03 6 weeks after getting my new x2 (age 34) doing a back roll. After rehab I was wake boarding the next summer with a brace. No longer use the brace still do back rolls and ski. I know of guys that didn't rehab as hard and nowhere near as good results. Sounds like you were like me. Amazing how much you take things for granted till you can't do them.

Btw I used a cti2 brace can't remember who made it. It was awesome. Waterproof and everything. It was what the pro boarders were all using at the time. Probably better ones out now. Also my insurance actually covered that brace.

Pushed too hard early on and was getting patellar tendon tendonitis...had to back off and ice for a week and got back at it. Really seemed to turn the corner 2 weeks ago (week 18 and 19) where I was building strength quickly and lots of stability with almost no swelling.

Was wearing a Don Joy brace pre-op and have used it post op when I'm doing physical things I probably shouldn't be doing (putting in the dock, moving boat lift, cutting down trees, etc)

Just shy of 10 months post op and operated knee is within 95% or better in every physical category....cleared to return to full activity. Back on the water at ice out for sure
