 Hey Arthur James, no I did not. I went for intense physiotherapy with training+massage+specialist every day for 6 weeks. It helped me gain muscle strength quickly and see if there was a lot of residual instability.

 

Having seen the results, I do not think surgery is necessary for me at he moment. It depends on the case I guess. I have also posted my progress on another forum, which you can find under kneeguru.co.uk under general topics and the same topic headline as here.

Good luck.

Background: Mid twenties, ACL torn (MRI + positive knee examination by two surgeons), five weeks after the incident no instability issues, no knee pain, established range of motion, remaining IT band pain

Reaching out to all of those who had a successful ACL reconstruction and ensuing physiotherapy in the past...

...I was pondering whether to have surgery despite a stable knee, I would be glad if anyone of you could share their experience in terms of:

 

- Did the surgery have any long-term side effects, e.g. does any area around your knee or leg started to hurt after surgery and has this not gone away?

- Has the surgery fully addressed the psychologically issue of fearing instability in the knee, i.e. do you now use your injured knee just like you did before surgery?

 

I would be much obliged for any personal experience.
