9 days after surgery -16 staples, moments before they were yanked from my leg. By a talented surgeon thankfully.
The long scar is where they took 1/3rd of the tendon that runs from kneecap to shin. The holes on either side is where the arthroscope and arthroscopic tools go in. The largest looking hole is where the drain went in. The one highest up on my leg is where they tension up the new ligament by pulling it through a hole drilled in my femur and out that hole in my thigh.
