Just got back from the doctor. I had ACL surgery 3 1/2 months ago where the took a piece of my hamstring to make an new ACL. I've been getting up at 5:30 every morning and hitting the gym and going to physical therapy once a week. Looks like all the hard work paid off becuase the doc said my knee looked great and I can start doing some controlled wrestling (I've actually been doing that for the last month but I didn't tell him that). He said in February I'm off all restrictions and can wrestle as hard as I want. Should be back just in time to start busting my ass to get ready for the Pan Ams. This is the best Christmas present I could have gotten this year. :)
Rodney, thats awesome bro!
Congrats! Rehab is key to everything. Take care of those knees.
Glad to hear it, man!
Awesome news Rodney!
Funny enough, I started training again last month after having the same ACL reconstruction (autograft from the hamstring) in July. 3 1/2 - 4 months out I felt GREAT. The hamstring was still a little vulnerable, and I was pretty gentle with the knee at first but then....
My second training session back, I tore my OTHER ACL!!
I think it was just REALLY REALLY bad luck, but also I was favoring my rehabbed leg, and in the process, I injured the other. BE CAREFUL!
