Acl and meniscus problem
Hello doctors, I had torn my acl and meniscus while playing football two years ago, I am a professional football player and I  undergone surgery after six months of injury. It has been 19months since surgery and I still feel instability in my knee.. I couldn't play football on my full potential, it feels like the knee will give up and I will fall down. In less words, my knee is not supporting me completely. I don't have any problem while doing any daily activities i can bend it perfectly but when it comes to doing sudden movements, consider if there is wet somewhere, I have not seen it, and I slips suddenly, the instability occurs. Or zig zag movement in football cause me to fall too. My knee is not completely supporting me and I couldn't play perfectly. Please suggest me some helpful ways with which I can get my strength back.

Check wether your ACL was repaired or reconstructed. Instability post surgical reconstruction, suggests improper tensioning or lax ligament. May need another ligament reconstruction. If it was a repair, then it is not sufficient to support high demands like sports as evident by instability.
