User :   Hello
I had ruptured my ACL about 3 years ago and had ACL reconstruction 2 years ago using hamstring as the replacement. Everything was going great and i was discharged from physio therapy, however, two days ago i was playing football and twisted my knee which resulted with me screaming in agony, unable to walk and unable to straighten my leg. I had an x ray the same day but nothing showed up. Im still unable to walk and straighten the leg and there is now a lot of swelling. Could this be related to my previous injury or could this be something to do with the cartilage? I appreciate any kind of advice
