you wont be able to get your money back because that is a known risk of the surgery. Also you consented to the surgery and that is one of the risks that is defined on the consent form, although you may not have realized it. I had the same problem, except my graft was an autograft. My graft didnt rupture but stretched out. I also said that it never felt right from the beginning. I did go ahead and have another complete ACL reconstruction, using a cadaver graft the second time. So far, it has been pretty good. Sorry to hear what you are going through. Its not fun
