Around 3 months ago I had a trampoline accident which left me with bruising on the bone and a complete torn ACL (MRI confirmed) my consultant has sent me for 3 months worth of physio to see if I can build the muscle up around my knee to compensate for the lost ACL. However my physio has told me 90% of people end up having the ACL reconstruction surgery under 30 (I’m 28) and also that it’s totally my decision if I want to go ahead with the surgery.
I know it’s early days still, my knee feels quite unstable and easily gives way, often aches quite a bit, I’ve also lost a bit of bend so I’m unable to crouch down but I don’t seem to have any trouble with normal walking just stairs can be a bit tricky sometimes. I want to be able to work out in the gym and not worry about my knee giving way.
Has anyone had a torn ACL, not had the surgery and been able to carry on as normal?
I’m very much in two minds of what to do. Any advice/opinions on this would be greatly appreciated.
