Have any of you had ACL surgery? How has your return to dance been? How long were you in rehab? Any suggestions for someone approaching this?

While I have not, I know several dancers who have. One was a teen, the other was an adult dancer. The teen used a portion of her hamstring to repair her ACL, the adult used a cadaver ACL. For both, the surgery wasn't bad, and both made sure to use the perpetual motion machine as soon as they could be hooked up.
They both rehabbed to the point of returning to the dance level they were previously at, and have continued dancing without trouble since.

Make sure you let your PT know what you are trying to return to in terms of movement and intensity, and remember when you return to give yourself time to build your strength up again.
