Anna, how can you ride after an ACL tear in 3 months? Is it a partial requiring no surgery? Just curious. Most people are out at least 6 months.
Old    Anna Hajek (reckless)      Join Date: Sep 2007       01-20-2009, 11:56 AM Reply   
Word from my doctor is 3-4 months.

Anna, I wish you the best of luck. About the worst thing you can do would be to come back too soon. I know when I blew my knee out it was about 6 months, and even then, I was sketched.

thanks shaun.
well when i got my mri we couldnt really tell %100 percent sure what exactly was wrong with it because there was so much blood in my knee at the time, but after the surgery the doctor said i tore my acl, stretched my mcl, and tore my miniscus, im pretty bummed about it because after i got the mri the doctor said i wasnt going to be out for that long but the time frame has definetly changed now.

Hey Anna,

Sorry to hear about your knee, I did the exact same thing and getting surgery in a week. How did your surgery go?
Old    Anna Hajek (reckless)      Join Date: Sep 2007       01-24-2009, 9:55 AM Reply   
ooh no way! well im going to warn you now that it is the most painful thing ever! no one warned me that it was going to hurt this bad but ive been in the worst pain ever, the 3rd day after surgery is the best because you get to take the bandages off and at the point your knee barley hurts for a little bit.

surgery went smooth though.

Sweet, can't wait! (Actually I'm SO ready to get it done and start healing.)

Glad it went well, and that it's not hurting as bad anymore.

Andrea... sorry to hear about your ACL!!! That sucks... Make sure you do some good rehab before hitting the wake again.

If you major meniscus damage, (like I did) talk to your doc about braces that will protect the damaged area. They are called OA braces. If I had started using mine years ago, my knee would be much better than it is now. The OA braces also secure the knee for ACL injuries.

my friend let me use her ice maker thing the doctor gave her and that also helped out my knee sooo much.

Yup, I kept the ice machine on mine 24/7 for the first 72 hrs + elevation or in the ROM machine. I had very little swelling and got my ROM faster back than most...according to the PT. That machine was a lifesaver for sure!
