complete ACL reconstruction using cadaver graft.anyone?

i am getting ready to have a complete ACL reconstruction done on my left knee, using a cadaver graft. (they will also fix any other problems they see while they are in there). i was wondering if anyone has gone through this and can you tell me about how you felt after surgery,how well could you walk... that day....a few days later, months later etc.....thanks :)

  • I have not had this procedure. I work for a company who supplies Continuous Passive Motion machines. I would def. think you need one after your surgery to give you movement back to the knee as soon as possible.
