ACL and meniscus repair done. Doing agility drills. When will I get recovered?

Hello I had ACL and Meniscus repairs done about 9/12 months ago. I went back to my doctor and he said everything looked great but and said i could return to sports in about a month. However I just started doing agility drills about 3 weeks ago nd Im at the point where my knee is no longer sore the day after I do them. I was just wondering if i could still return to sports even though I would have only been doing agility and lateral exercises for about a month before my return. Is there a greater risk of tearing the ACL again because of this? Thank You

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

As more than 9 months have elapsed after your repair of ACL & Meniscus, there should not be any problem in returning to sports.

But all the sporting activities should be started at a low frequency and intensity in the beginning and go on increasing at a steady pace. DON'T EVER TRY TO DO ANY SPORTING ACTIVITY AT A STRETCH.

You should realize that fact that your knee is NOT A NORMAL KNEE but a REPAIRED KNEE. I think you got the point.

Hope this information is helpful. Good luck
