Hi everyone. I fell while skiing a couple of weeks ago and tore a ligament in my knee, the ACL to be specific. I've just seen the doctor and he recommended that I get surgery to reconstruct it given that I am young and like to do sports. It sounds like a pretty routine surgery (done arthroscopically) and my insurance covers it so having it does not worry me too much, but I wanted to see if anyone has ever experienced a torn ACL and whether you had the reconstructive surgery. Any advice and anecdotes are much appreciated.
