I got knee arthroscopy surgery on May 2ND 2017 from my Orthopedic surgeon to repair my torn ACL with my hamstring graft and the doctor removed part of my meniscus. It had been working well. I didn't have any pain after the surgery so I didn't take any pain medication. I torn both in March 25th and had start eating clean afterwards, did going to gym and did the therapy. All I was doing was trying to find info as much as I can before approaching the surgery date. I am lucky I didn't have any bruising and pain afterwards and walking with 2 crutches since day 1 after surgery. 1st day I walked about 30min x 3 times. 2nd day 45min x 4 times 3rdday 40minx3 times 4thday 1.5hr x 3times. I felt so much better and I can put weight on my left leg. I'm doing the therapy and RICE everytime I rest. It took so much to try to recover. But the swelling seems to stay the same. I measured everyday and it's between 40 cm 42 cm 38 cm. Each is 6 cm over and under the knee. Is that another approaching for reduce the swelling? I'm not a medication type of person. But I'm open to natural healing. All my food is no sodium no preservatives no sugar raw food vegetarian. I was wondering if ice heat ice will help too since it's pass 96hours post surgery. Thank you for all kind of information/help.
