Bristol, I don't know how old your post is, but thought I'd throw in my comments. I, also, had torn one ACL years earlier, but never had it diagnosed, even though my knee buckled several times a year. When I tore the other one (both were while doing karate)and had it diagnosed, I asked the Dr. to check the first, and sure enough... I had the most recent tear (left) operated on about 10 months ago,in April, using my hamstring tendon for a graft. The Dr. was fine with doing the second at least 4 months after the first, so in September I had the right done, using cadaver tissue this time.
Nearly 6 months after the second, I am starting to return slowly to sports (with no kicking or pivoting.) The donor grafted knee feels pretty darned good, but for some arthritis. The first knee has recently developed sharp pains where the tendon was pulled, which I am told is scar tissue that attached itself in the wrong place. I can't say if this was caused by my being too eager to work that muscle, or perhaps from putting so much strain on it just 4 months after the surgery, when the other knee was incapacitated. Either way, I am told it will ease up (it already is some). In addition, I cannot lift that foot as high in back as the other and am really working to regain those hamstring muscles. I still struggle with things like carrying a heavy basket of laundry upstairs, but I definitely feel I am still getting stronger. I turned 40 between the two surgeries, so I wasn't so young and strong anyway. But perhaps the knee with the older tear feels so good partly due to my having developed the muscles to compensate for the tear over the 4 years since it occurred.
