sorry to hear that Phil,
My older boy tore his ACL in a FIS Dh his 1st J2 year.
they but him in rehab before the surgery to get a smuch range of motion as possible before surgery.
We opted to use hamstring for the repair. it was about a nine month recovery and 2 years later he won the training run at the same DH on the same course. He did struggle subconciously when racing for about 1 1/2 seasons.
It has been 4 years and he is skiing better and stronger then ever. I understand that he is a lot younger, but with great rehab and following Dr's orders they have come light years in repairing these things.
tell her good luck and have a speedy successful recovery!
