i didn't get a ligament repair, but i did have arthroscopic surgery. it's just surgery where they use a camera and some small tools instead of just cutting you wide open. much better option. if you can get it fixed, you might as well.
holy god man, i havnt ever run that far in one go and i played two varsity and 1 college sports. why would you do that? dont get surgery...ever...unless it is emergency surgery. I have made a vow to never have elective surgery again.
whats your recovery time like? what are your non-surgical rehab options?
