Just blew out my ACL last Saturday. Man this sucks. Oh well it happens. I hope I can get it repaired in time to a least get some snowboarding in this season. If not I might go stir crazy. At least I have college football on right now.

Sucks to hear that man, I just had my surgery three weeks ago. Seems like there were a ton of ACLs by wakeworlders this year.

A lot of good threads out there regarding graft choice, rehab, etc.

What doc are you seeing in KC? A freind of mine saw Nathan Barnhardt (sp?), I guess he does a lot of the work for the KC Cheifs. Anyways he got an allograft (cadaver) and was pretty happy w/ his doc and results.

Best of luck, I think you'll be pushing it to think you'll snowboard this year, but some are more aggressive than others...

Sorry to hear that. Rehab hard.....It took me a about 10 months to gain the confidence back to ride at the same level. On a good note I was snowboarding in 5.5 months, and I am 35. It takes longer for us old guys to recover. What kind of graft?
