I went through an ACL reconstruction too. Mine was pulled from my hammy, but I noticed a nice breakthrough in PT at about 3 months. I was able to walk briskly on a treadmill, even jog for a few seconds. At 5 months I was jogging (with the brace) pain free. At 7 months, I played in a baseball tournament, much to the anger of my wife and Doctor. I wore my brace. I was sore, but it rebounded nicely. I finally fully ditched the brace at the 10 month mark. I do wear a sleeve now when I play any sport, but its just because it makes me feel safer.

Good luck in your rehab.

I'm a little over six months removed from my surgery. I stopped going to therapy at the beginning of May as I was able to workout on my own. I started going to therapy again today to do some more aggressive activities (jumping, jogging, etc.). I was surprised at some of the things that I was able to do and at how good the knee felt. My therapist kept on asking me how much my knee hurt and she was amazed when I kept telling her that it felt great.

My doctor seems to be taking a very cautious approach to my rehab. She didn't want me jogging any earlier than six months and she doesn't want my playing golf yet. I was able to sort of jog for a very short amount of time today though. I just have to keep telling myself that the knee is fine and nothing bad is going to happen. I feel like a good amount of the rehab is mental, just gaining trust and confidence in the knee.
