    Hi Ritesh,

    Sorry to hear about the way you had your acl tear – having an acl injury is terrible by itself, but going through the mugging is awful.

    I just had acl reconstruction using an allograft and am about 10 days post op.

    Would it be possible to speak to you about your recovery process etc from the acl surgery? I am in the SF bay area. I can send you my ph no. over email.
