TBM-1808.20 – DDOP-020: ACL Surgery – 6 Weeks PostOp

6 Weeks PostOp

#Audio. The bathtub mermaid babbles about her 6-week post-op ortho visit.


On July 11th, I had the ACL and ALL replaced in my left knee, and my meniscus trimmed. 6 Weeks Later, I’ve finally been cleared to put weight on my involved leg, and go back in the pool.
