Week 4 post-op ACL repair with auto graft, I had onset of pain, edema and decreased range of motion. My orthopedic surgeon told me the XR are good, but he feels the reversal in my healing is related to scar tissue "behind the knee cap" and therefore requires manipulation under anesthesia. I just want to get ahead of my PT and walk normally again. Anyone ever had a manipulation 6 wks out of surgery for the same problem?? Thanks!
