3 days post-op of my ACL reconstruction surgery I started my physical therapy. With hard work I was about 85% back to normal in about 2 months and just needed to continue to strengthen my leg so I could be completely back to normal. A little more than 8 months post-op I was completely cleared to do everything including snowboard and play soccer. Now I am a little over 2 years post-op and I feel far better than I did even before surgery. I snowboard very often in the winter and have take up rock-climbing in the warmer months.
