I had my ACL Replaced in 2007. I don't think it was a traditional surgery because everyone I talk to has had the ham string replacement and I had a bone-tendon-bone graft done. I also had my miniscus shaved. The pain I am experiencing is after I have been sitting for a long period of time (even sleeping) when ever I put weight on my leg I get a very sharp pain on the inside of my knee cap right by my scar. It is almost impossible to put my full weight on my leg. I don't have any problem bending it or anything it is only to put weight on it and it isn't stiff. I don't think this is arthritis. What could this possibly be? Will I need surgery again? Thanks!View Thread
