ACL injury: a personal experience

So I have just passed the 3 week mark after my right ACL reconstruction via patella graft. The first two weeks were very challenging! It mainly consisted of dealing with swelling, pain, trouble getting comfortable (especially for sleeping!), hobbling around the house, coping with boredom as well as doing lots of exercises… After two weeks off I returned to work and was surprised with how well my knee has coped being on my feet most of the day. I saw Kieran in the Keith clinic last week at the 2 week mark and he put me through my paces!
