ACL Surgery Recovery Questions

Hi, today is the 6th day after my ACL reconstruction and Meniscus repair arthroscopic surgery. I started taking Arnica right after I stopped the pain management prescription drugs (36 hours after the surgery) twice a day. The first two days I combined it with hypericum due to my low back pain I developed prior to the surgery and today and yesterday I took apis for the redness and burning sensation. Everything works fine so far and I am happy with the results.
Since the surgery involves bone drilling for implanting the allograft, I am wondering if symphytum officinale can sped-up the bone healing. I am also interested in something that can reduce the visibility of the scars from the incisions.
Thank you in advance!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
You may take symphytum Q or 30.
Once the affected region heals you may take 4 pellets of calc fluor 6x in the morning and evening for 15 days to help in your scar tissue.

Thank you so much for the fast response!
What shall be the interval between the Symphytum intakes?
Can I combine Symphytum with Arnica or Apis?

You may take Symphytum in the morning and evening. It is better to keep a gap of one hr between symphytum and other meds.

Continue with the Arnica but in the Wet dose twice daily for the next few weeks and taper it down to just one dose taken nightly before bed.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.
