my doc said 4-6 months to be healed but i have read/heard somewhere that sometimes it can take up to a year to be fully healed. i would assume that healing time would depend on the type of reconstruction surgery (cadaver acl, patellar tendon, hamstring or muscle), how much rehab one does and the individual. i had patellar tendon reconstruction surgery in march and it feels pretty good. i have not had a chance to ride yet b/c there is no snow here in lower michigan.
