I had the same surgery 7 weeks ago as of tomorrow JackC88. My surgeon and nurses also estimated I'd be off crutches by about week 6. At week 3 though they allowed me weight bearing as tolerated (while using crutches) to start getting the motion and movement back while working with my PT. I was able to lose the crutches completely by week 5 with my PTs guidance. Listen to your doctors and also your body. I know it seems like forever but you'll be glad you did. Appreciate your body as it goes through the healing process. It's pretty amazing.

I'd also recommend investing into some cushion comfort for your crutches and this sweet bag to put your phone and other small items in so you can at least carry some stuff with you. https://www.amazon.com/Crutch-Bag-Vive-Accessory-Lightweight/dp/B01IBUD24G/ref=sr_1_2?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1498787782&sr=1-2-spons&keywords=crutches+accessories&psc=1

Good luck!! One day at a time.

Ill be 5 weeks post op (ACL & Meniscus medial) tomorrow. As the other posted stated i would try the stairs on the crutches before hand. Recommend you take it very slow. Limit the amount to you need to go up and down them. As you get comfortable it will get easier. I would get some crutch pads. Have been using these.

​

As for studying the first week will be the hardest but after that studying for an exam should not be hard. The toughest for me is time budgeting. With so much time I procrastinate.

​

Try to get the house organized before hand, pillows to raise the leg on the couch, make walking around with the crutches easier and some ice packs. Good luck! You can pm if you have any questions.

I had to have a fasciotomy due to compartmental swelling to save my leg. So I don't know how many sutures you have.

Best of luck man, it's a long road but we will get there.

How'd it happen?
