No feeling in Shin bone post ACL surgery
It has almost been 10 weeks post ACL reconstruction with hamstring graft. I have had a quick recovery till now and I have also started outdoor jogging. But still, my shin bone feels numb. It has been like this post the surgery. Why has it happened? Is it common? Will this numbness ever go away?

It's because of injury to a very small nerve which runs superficial to hamstring graft harvesting area.. Its a very common condition post Acl reconstruction.. Numbness reduces over time.. But sometimes another big nerve can also be damaged.. For further assessment and management u can meet ur surgeon or me..
