    How much physio did you have to do? Can you play football and things now and do you still feel it? Sorry for the questions but I am getting this done soon I have the same problem as you (pending MRI scan). How long was the waiting list to get your op done?
    I didnt need any physio after my op. I play football all the time without a problem relating to the op. I still get niggles like when over-stretching when jumping etc but it happends in either knee every now and then and I dont think its related as it isnt necessarily my left knee that I had the op on. I cant remember how long the waiting list was as it was 6 years ago but dont remember it being that long.

    I tore my ACL and quite a lot of the meniscus back in november last year. However even after going to A+E three times over the course of four months this was never picked up on. I had surgery last Friday and all seems to have gone okay but rehab is a b*tch.
    I had done quite a lot of research before the surgery about ACL tears. I would advise you not to continue playing football as it does massively increase the risk of arthritis in your later years. A torn ACL prevents you from "cutting" and "chopping" in football. If you continued playing you would degenerate your knee.

    Like I explained previously I also have a torn ACT but I don't do much sports; just gym and weight lifting. I don't know when I'm going to operate; as a pilot's life...would I ever get time to I don't know. I ocasionally get the pain in my knee when I stay seated for over an hour or so, and I can't crouch. The good thing is that I can run fast.

    Best advice (tho not professional) is do it while you are young so you can heal fast!

    How many times did you have to visit the specialists to get your hospital appointment? What was the MRI liek and did they decide based on that or did they do other stuff? and how long was the gap from MRI to operation? Whats your expected recovery time for normal everyday use (inc bending and runnings)

    Any info appreciated ...I really should find a medical forum!

    major bumpage on this thread

    as it turns out i had a partial acl tear, i never had surgery in the end. i managed good years worth of 5 a side football but managed to do some damage a couple of weeks back which has put me out of action again


    i think i really will have to retire again this time as its not worth the hassle etc

    how is everyone else getting on?
