This is not your average "hurr durr I think I'm hurt, diagnose me DR NS" thread.
I hurt my knee a few months ago. Insurance wouldn't let me have an MRI until I completed 8 weeks of physio. Been going to physio and my PT is pretty sure I've torn my pcl and meniscus. I am finally allowed to have an MRI june 16th (3.5 months after initial injury, fuck the medical insurance system).
The problem is, I've been reading about pcl injuries and the outlook is bleak. Some do well never getting it repaired, and some who never get it repaired have knee problems for life. The surgery looks like it's a total crapshoot as to whether it will heal correctly. I read a lot of cases of people's new PCL "sagging" months after the surgery, only for their doc to tell them there's no way to fix it short of doing the whole surgery over again. I feel like whichever route I choose I have a pretty good chance of being fucked for a very long time. I just want to ski like I used to. From what I've read online, most docs aren't even willing to do such a surgery. My knee doc is great, and I follow his directions, but even a great doc can't guarantee such a sketchy procedure will be a success.
I could hardly find anything on the internet about PCL injuries and skiing, nobody seems to hurt their PCL. If anybody who has damaged their PCL here could tell me anything about it, I would really appreciate it. I have no idea what I'm going to do, and I'm driving myself insane with the possibilities in the meantime until my MRI.
