I am surprised that you are going to PT a month after the operation. I was starting PT a week after the surgery. Good luck, it was a real painful expierence and to this day I can't watch football players blowing out their knees on the highlight reels.
It was a very long recovery and I didn't ski for about 10 years because of fear of tearing it again. Though I tore it playing basketball my sister tore hers in front of me in Utah.
I am the same. I tore mine and meniscus playing basketball. How old are you know ? I am going for knee reco this week.
How are you doing now ? Do you have any OA ? Did you have any meniscus damage they might have trimmed ?
