TJ you're the man and my favorite skier. a few weeks after I tore my ACL/both meniscii, I read the news that you did too. Watching that basically summed up my last few months. Keep going strong man, and get back to what you were. That's what I'm hoping to accomplish next season.
Thank you, TJ.

I got mine done 5 weeks ago and i'm just being allowed back in the gym, kind of made me feel sick seeing what they did to my knee though. haha
imagine if your dick was so long you could wear it as a belt. Ive always had this stupid thought that a girl would come up to rub it because it was such a nice belt. Then you would get a boner and it would whip out and slap her.Just a thought. -radtad
Vibes man, I've had a few friends tear their ACL's and it's always hard.
Question though: How come you can get to the gym and start working your knee again, but for other people they have to wait weeks (someone said they just got to the gym after 5 weeks)? Do different doctors just have differing opinions? If I ever tore my ACL would I be able to take that kind of recovery route?
I'm on day 13 post ACL reconstruction via hamstring graft. I got my surgery done at the Utah Orthopedic Center where the doctors are very well versed in ACL reconstructions. My surgery was on Monday March 21st, and I had my first physical therapy session on Thursday the 24th. The first thing they did was put me on a bike a tell me to pedal.
Your recovery time is extremely dependent on the competence of your surgeon. Patella and Hamstring grafts both have their advantages and disadvantages and one is not necessarilly better than the other. The only important factor is that your surgeon is very good at reconstructing using which ever tendon he chooses. Some surgeons who have not performed as many surgeries may butcher your leg more and you may not be able to take the route of an accellerated recovery.
Tearing an ACL was always one of my worst fears. Thus far, the surgery and the recovery have not been nearly as bad as I though it would be. There has been minimal pain, just some soreness after therapy. I take percocet more because I am bored and not because my knee is hurting. I was cleared to walk around the house without crutches or an immobilizer after 11 days. I'm hoping that after six more weeks of strengthening and riding a stationary bike I will be able to get on a road bike by week eight. My goal is to be back to mountain biking by August and be 100% by November for skiing.
It's also important to go into surgery with your leg in good shape. The stronger your leg is going into surgery, the easier your recovery will be.
Some people also can't take an accelerated recovery route if they have severe meniscus damage along with a torn ACL. With just an ACL reconstruction, you can begin bearing full weight on the injured leg as soon as the nerve block wears off. With more severe meniscus damage, you can't bear weight on the injured leg for a few weeks.
Yeah... I just ask because I've always been afraid of tearing something in my knee too. I have really strong legs naturally and from lots of skiing, but whenever I ski, I ski really hard and take lots of falls. On top of that I'm 20 now, and I know that one of these days I'll most likely take a jump too deep or wreck myself on a rail etc. and want to know how to be prepared for that.
So I guess, keep the legs strong and in shape and hope for the best?
