Hi there, I have been reading various threads with interest and thought some advice might be good for my current problem.
I injured my right knee playing cricket in July and after 4 months of physio have finally had the results of my MRI scan which have shown up a partial tear to my Medial Ligament and complete tear to my ACL. My consultant is supposedly booking me in for a chat with the knee surgeon to see what can be done.
I wondered what experience people on here have had with this as my consultant indicated that in some cases reconstruction of the ACL is not done and it may be possible to build up the Quads and Hamstrings to avoid the need for a reconstruction.
In all honesty the injury has not entirely stopped me running, although it has severely reduced my training due to instability, nevertheless I still managed to complete the GNR only 8 mins outside my PB this year, which I was pretty chuffed about given that I had only trained a handful of times in the two months running up to it.
I suppose what I am after is advice on whether going through the pain etc of an operation is worth it or should I just try and negate the damage to the ACL by strengthening?
Any advice gratefully received.
