I am a student(21).I got my ACL broken while playing soccer(october 26th,2009).After conservative treatment of 7 months , doctor finally suggested me for surfery as the pain incresed day by day.
I had my surgery 22 day back(24th may,2010).My recovery was on right track and i was doing my physiotherapy timely.Even the doctor was fully satisfied when i went to met him 4 days back.The swelling around the knee subsided upto 70-80 percent.
But ,from the past 24 hours,i feel a lot of pain while doing the necessary excercises .As i try to straighten my knee, i feel a severe pain around the lower circumference of knee cap and also beneath the knee, though i am able to straighten it.Temporarily i am using "ICE PACKS" for lessening my pain and i have discontinued the physiotherapy excercises .I am still using crutches for walking inside my home.
Is there any recommended posture for sleeping?
Is this normal with the ACL operated patients?
Help will be highly appreciated.
