Mucho sympathies sent your way, and healing karma, and another grand trip someday in the near future. That's a bitch. I adopted PT as my temporary religion after my ACL recon, and it gave me focus and helped my drive.

Again depends on the surgery. I have had both of mine done and was boating the easy stuff w/in a month or two. My left knee was done in mid march and I was rafting and kayaking by june, but I was a monk when it came to rehab. Get that done! My biggest problem was b/c I had a hamstring graft and it really hurt in my hamstrings when I rolled (like scary pain). So I suggest testing this out and it seems to help when I stretch my hams extensively before paddling, this still helps many years later. Take it easy cause you dont want to do it again. Good luck
