Post ACL repair knee flexion friction
Hi Doctor, I have had my ACL repair arthroscopy done via screw technique. It has been 2 weeks today and my knee flexion is about 80-90° and it is stretching fully. When I am doing heel slide knee flexion excercise afte 10-15 reps I am starting to notice a friction on the outer side of the knee. It is painless/not obstructing the motion. But there is a sensation of something crackling, rubbing kind. Is that normal? Or my graft implants are getting disturbed. I have asked this question to my surgeon. He is out of town and not responding. Please provide an answer Thanks
