Hello to all of you guys
40 days ago i had a ski accident and twisted my knee.The knee was not swallen and i felt almost no pain.I went to some doctors and they said i had an acl tear probapby partial (they saw the mri results too ).ALL of them talked and convinced me to have an acl repair.All those days i felt no instability at all ,but i didnt make any ski or other sports
So i decided to go with one of them who had very good recomentations from people i know.He said to me that there is no differense if the tear is partial or full because im an active person who needs a good knee.The operation he said is going to be done with the hamstings and after rehab your are going to be fine.dont worry about it at all.
3 days ago i had my arthroscopy done.But when i woke up i was extremelly surprised.The doctor come to me and said: You were very very lucky,your acl was only partial streched while lots of fibers where fine.So i made to those streched fibers a thermal shrinkage and now they are fine.As you can imagined i was shocked in a good way.No pain no crutches only a brace.
But now i am worried as i have read that this technique is not good and has short outcome.Im am also worried that i went through all this for nothing.Why the doctor did this allthough we had agreed to recon my acl ?(he hadnt mentioned this possibility at all)
thanks and sorry for the long post
