Told me to go check up with my doctor in a couple days and to take it easy on it for a week or so. They gave me some straight brace to wear. My doctor says it doesn't look good and sends me for an mri. Got the results back today and they said it was the worst knee injury they had ever seen. Torn ACL, torn meniscus, sprained mcl and lcl, and a broken femur. I guess they only see the impact fracture in car wrecks. Anyways, I know several on here have blown out acl's, what's my time frame I'm looking at here of being down? I am looking at putting off surgery until after football season, thoughts on that.
I tore a meniscus and cartilage in my knee last November. Stupidly only took a couple weeks off and am just about pain free now. Its still sore but can walk fine without a brace. Good luck
