Tore my ACL after casing the wake in August. Had ACL Reconstruction on 9/17/12 (used hamstring graft and they also stitched up a couple small meniscus tears).

I have full extension and can bend it up to like 130 degress. Still stiff after sitting for a couple hours, but I can more or less walk without a limp.

Those with ACL Reconstructions, about how long did you do PT sessions? So far I've done 20 PT sessions over the past 2 months since surgery (2-3 times per week). Should that be enough or should I expect to do PT for several more months? My insurance will cover up to 20, but if I need to continue to attend PT then I'll suck it up and pay for it. Otherwise, I'll just go to the gym.

Also, for those rehabbing on their own after you're done with PT, what are the best exercises? My quad teardrop is mostly back, but my outer quad is still concave. My other (good) leg quad is bigger than ever. Kind of depressing! Anyway, I've been riding a stationary bike for 45 mins at a time on level 10 which pushes my legs pretty hard. Then I do 3 sets of 15 leg dual leg and then single leg leg presses. Then I do some hamstring machine curls, and sometimes calf raises. Anything else I should start doing at the gym?
