Default Post ACL surgery advise

Our 7 year old had acl surgery this past March,, the recovery has went well..I still have in on leash a lot when he is outside .. We live in a wooded area and when he sees something he would run as hard as he can to our fence line.. Our vetranarian told us that there was a chance that he could damage the acl on the other side within the first year.. So I am wondering if someone that has been through this with there pet could tell me at what point did they feel they could let there pet be completly free/off leash ..I understand that there is always a chance for injury,,even on a healthy dog.. Thanks for any advice ...
