ACL reconstruction surger
Hello doctor, I have to undergo an acl reconstruction surgery next month. I injured my acl while playing cricket. It happened 2 years ago. Doctor said that the cost of the surgery is Rupees sixty thousand. My doubt is will I be able to return to sports after the surgery? I'm also under medications for psychic illnesses. Should I stop the medicines before the surgery? Please Help me. Thank you.

Yes ,after acl reconstruction, person can resume sports. But it needs rehabilitation exercises, and it may take you 3-6 months to be able to do it. Regarding your medication that you are already using, you may have to discontinue it for a day or more , depending on the type of medication
