I saw the surgeon today. I've got tendonitis in my patellar tendon. The doc prescribed an anti-inflamatory I've never heard of (meloxicam). And he suggested I wear one of those neoprene sleeves to give my knee a little support. He said this is a common occurrence for ACL surgery patients. During the recovery when the muscles in your upper leg are weak (flacid, ugh) the tendon gets over-used and irritated. Luckily I am past the bone pain from my femur.

The doctor is pleased with my range of motion, strength in my leg, as well as how straight I can extend my leg. He gave me a prescription to give to the physical therapist to address the tendonitis specifically.

My next check-in is the first week of July.
