Posterior Pain/Swelling One Year Later (ACL repair)


I use to ride motorcycles (yeah i know). About ten years ago i fell of my bike and hurt my knee. I wore a cast for a few months until the Dr told me i needed surgery or i will never walk again. Well that scared the crap out of me, yet I still didn't have the surgery. I was a little cocky back then lol.

A couple years ago my knee kept buckling on me. Every time I ran I would feel a pop. Dealt with the pain for a few days and was back at it. This routine kept on for a few years till I couldn't deal with it anymore (not the pain it was just annoying) I'm good with pain it lets us know were still alive.

Last year had the surgery, horrible the worst months of my life,but, I got back on my feet. I wasn't really having any problems until i started playing ball again or just running.

The knee feels fine, its stable but i get a lot of pain behind the knee with swelling that last a couple of days. The pain is really bad but it feels like its not the knee. It feels like its my muscle I swelling in the back of the knee right where the tendon is supposed to be. The pain is not in in the calf or my thigh it's right in the middle behind the knee, when i try to stretch it out it hurts really bad but then i do get some relief.

Can anyone suggest anything, is this common will it go away.

Thanks for you time
