Hi,

If you have had additional bone grafting for your ACL surgery you should not bear weight on the affected limb for at least 6 weeks. This waiting period is necessary the graft to unite with the bone. Meanwhile you can do exercises to move the knee, fold your legs and strengthen your quadriceps muscle.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. George Verghese, Orthopaedic Surgeon
