I just tore, my left anterior cruciate ligament my left medial meniscus,and my lateral meniscus playing in a men's league game 3 weeks ago... I am fucking blown, initially i thought it was just a meniscus tear considering that i'm able to jog pretty efficiently 3 weeks since the injury... obviously going to get surgery... just sucks cause this is my second knee surgery...

So, who is Sir Alex going to replace you with?

I've torn my right meniscus as well, I don't think it was that bad, since it somehow "healed" itself. It still bothers me at times, I just need to go drain it. I didnt get surgery in the first place since I didn't have insurance.

damn i just tore my ACL 2 sundays ago. going to get an MRI in 3 hours actually to find out if it is 100% my ACL or anything else. the doctor first thought it was my meniscus and then the ortho thought it was my ACL. im just now being able to stand on it but i cant walk or else it just gives out when i put pressure on it. can barely get to 90 degrees when i try to bend it or else it feels like its gonna explode out of my skin

THIS SHIT HURTS LOL
i was doing good the first day and a half when i got home since the nerve block was still helping against my leg. but now that i can feel everything omgzzz, im guessing it hurts more because they used a graft from my petallar tendon but gdamn it feels like my knee cap is going to explode when i have to move. going to the bathroom is a pain in the ASS. gotta hold out till thursday when i go back to see the doctor. they gave me percosetts but i start itching like crazy if i take too many

yah im taking benadryl now when i take the 2 percosetts it kinda negates the itchiness. the petalla is just a trade off i guess, pain for the first couple of days but a better fake-ACL later on supposedly so I still think its worth it

went for the follw up visit yesterday. thought i was going to get my stitches taken out but the doctor told me they are the kind that get absorbed fml finally got to see the cuts and where they worke on and everything. he said they actually repair my meniscus but still doesn't want me putting weight on it for another 2 weeks when i see him again which sucks but hopefully ill be able to limp around without crutches by then. got physical therapy next wednesday or thursday not sure what im going to be doing there since the doctor just said the most he wants me to bend is 30 degrees...

didn't read prior posts, but only advice i can give is to thoroughly and actively participate in physical therapy. i suffered my first serious knee injury at age 13 and never finished physical therapy and my knee will never be the same. i can't run as fast as i used to, i can jump as high, and it hurts me all the time. same situation with both ankles, both had serious sprains and i never went to more than one physical therapy session for either. my left ankle clicks every time i rotate it and my right is permanently swollen. DON'T BE STUPID LIKE ME, COMPLETE PHYSICAL THERAPY

sports injuries suck. from baseball, i broke all my fingers at one point or another, nose twice, tendinitus in my left knee, tore some lateral collateral ligaments in my left ankle, and tore my ulnar collateral ligament(yes i should have gotten tommy john surgery but didnt). from soccer before HS, i tore my quad. from football i tore my quad again, an abdominal muscle, and 2 concussions.

knee feels pretty good right now. i am going to get cleared to jog/run probably this week or next week. got a donjoy defiance brace for when i do return back to sports and activities. it hurts every once in a while and sometimes it will crack/pop real loud but other than that its pretty good.

my physical training is pretty much just lift weights and then shuffling side to side and climbing stairs as fast as possible
