This surgery is like nothing before
I had a ACL reconstruction surgery for a complete torn ACL. I wanted a year to have the surgery. This surgery has kicked my butt. I can handle pain and I had 3 hip and 2 back surgeries but this maybe the worse of them. The constant pain, foot numbness and pain, and the difficulty with walking. Pain medications don't even take the edge off. I am 9 out 10 for pain. With previous surgeries the day after or two is the worse then it gets better.
I have tried RICE, Tylenol, and the prescribed pain medication. I know ACL surgery recovery is a lengthy process but I am at a lost. No way can I do PT. I am wondering when will I even get the pain under controled and be able to walk.
It is hard not to jump to wild ideas of a failed surgery with such pain and difficulties.
