    While that may have been the case 20 yrs. ago, that's not accurate today. Depending on the reconstructive technique used, success rate of ACL surgery is around 90%, and recovery time is generally around 6 months for a pro-athlete, although they will usually stay out the entire season.

    I've just had my ACL replaced, and I intend to be back at it in six months. The doc thinks it should be fine, so long as I wear my new $1400 brace.

    I had ACL surgery a few years back after an accident in a gymnastics class. With a good rehab program my recovery was rather quick, about 4 months or so.

Already my knee feels better, and I'm maintaining my strength and flexibility somewhat. I didn't feel this good until after a month of physical therapy last time around. And that was AFTER the damn 3 months in the stiff brace.

    ****, after another week or two, I may even be able to start doing some light shadow boxing and stick work before my cardio conditioning goes to hell.

    It seems like such a simple and cliche concept, use it or lose it.
    Looks like you picked a good specialist. You'll be fine if you push "just hard enough"

    And "use it or lose it" is what the human body is all about. There should be more emphasis on this in Health classes, in my opinion.
