In July 2017 I had an ACL reconstruction along with partial meniscectomy. My recovery went well with regular doctor check ups and physical therapy. Over the last 7 months I've had something occur a few times and I'm wondering if it's "normal". I workout 4 times a week, I'm careful and have not had any workout related pain afterwards. But very randomly my knee swells up and feels like I've somehow hurt it, like if I've somehow "stepped wrong" and aggrevated something. The first time it happened I went to sit down. Most recently it was just after a day of walking a lot. After these instances my knee will swell & tighten up and it goes on for about a week. During that week my knee will feel weak and daily things like stair climbing, will be a little difficult. I'm wondering if this is something that I'll have to deal with for the rest of my life or am I still technically in a recovery phase that can take years. Has anyone else dealt with something like this?
