I like the idea of widening and also possibly extending.

I go back to the DR on Wednesday. The swelling from surgery is almost completely gone. I have about 40 degree range of motion in my knee. I have ALMOST eliminated pain meds.

There is a realistic possibility that I can start to place some weight on the leg and actually walk with out crutches beginning this Wednesday.

Should I ask the Doc when to ride again or just use my own judgment?

Wish me well at the Dr this Wednesday.

Happy riding my friends!

Your ACL ended up being okay it was just the fracture? I'd wait until he clears you for regular physical activity and then maybe ask him if you feel inclined lol. All you need is for that fracture to calcify over, then it will actually be stronger than before. Good thing about bones.

Yeah the ACL was fine. Just the fracture which was extremely large. I’ll probably wait at least another month to get back on unless I really have great rehab success

Bitching bro. ACL stuff is horrible. You dodged a bullet.

The leg will be stronger than it was before......definitely talk to your doc about rehab and getting back in, especially if you have a high pain tolerance. People who have a hard time red flagging discomfort tend toward re-injury too often.

Follow your rehab to a T, you'll be glad you did. Getting into physical therapy won't hurt either....


Glad you and the bike are ok bro.

Well I got more disappointing news at the Dr yesterday. While the injury is healing as it should I still can’t place any significant weight on my leg until 6 more weeks. This is because I not only fractured the bone just below the knee I also did extensive damage to cartilage just below the knee. The doc said I would be risking more damage to that cartilage if I don’t wait another 6 weeks before beginning rehab and placing weight on it.

I moped around all day yesterday with a woe is me attitude. But at the end of the day ya just gotta suck it up and make the best of it.

Below is cat scan of injury before surgery. The top right side of that bone is supposed to look like the top left side
