    for this kind of question, talk to your doctor bro.

    in my opinion only I would only take the cell tech, its only overpriced creatine and dextrose anyways, wont harm anything. And why are you getting in the gym so early, take some rest and let that knee heal up - you have your whole life to lift. You mess that thing up stumbling or straining wrong, you lose months maybe years of progress.

    Ive had knee surgery three times and ankle surgery twice from football and baseball injuries - Im tellin ya, the one time I didnt give the ankle enough time to heal it was a bad deal. Your acl and miniscus dont take that long to heal post surgery anyway before you can start rehab.

    Just my opinion bro,

    IMO (Im no doctor) supplements won't hurt you unless they cause you to work out harder and you re-injure your knee. By the same token a lot of those supplements won't do jack shit unless your working out hard so you may be pissing your money away!! Also, Cell Tech?? No matter what the advertisements say Ronnie Coleman doesn't use the shit! Do you find the NO-explode makes you feel bloated/full of gas? I took it a couple of times and it messed with my stomach.
