So I recently received my third ACL receonstruction, which like a fine wine, is more enjoyable over time. This one was even more of a doozy as it was a dual operation, where I had ACL Reconstruction and an Osteotomy. I forgot how insanely painful the first week of recovery acutally is. It involves a constant drug induced haze coupled with the inability to sleep for more than a couple hours due to sharp constant pain. If I had to pick my favorite part, I would have to say it would be living on the 2nd floor of a duplex where the bathroom was downstairs. I have been extremely lucky to have such amazing friends to visit during the first couple weeks and provide endless entertainment to feed my boredom.
For your enjoyment I included a brief video of the advancements of technology. I now have the ability to pay for a machine that will bend my knee for me hypotheticaly making the recovery process easier.
