Sir_SkrillALoti had a pcl tear when i blew out my knee (with a bunch of other things as well, acl, and meniscus). base advice of mine is definitely to try and avoid surgery when possible and try and keep in mind that your body will generally let you know when something isnt working for you. your body is incredibly powerful at healing itself and when it comes down to it surgery is an incredibly brutal process that in the end your body does the majority of the healing/adapting.
besides that though, im not a doctor but ive always thought the approach of "listen to your doctor" is pretty simple minded. learning about your body isnt inherently hard and most books/papers are incredibly approachable compared to other stem areas. also its interesting to learn imo. id definitely suggest skimming books/papers from places like libgen, "Essentials of Orthopedic Surgery" or "The Multiple Ligament Injured Knee" (those are just the ones i still have saved from when i was trying to figure out my knee situation) along with tons of outcome studies if you know how to research.
.JakeThaDug.alright you really didn't need to make me sound like THAT big of an asshole
Sir_SkrillALotlol i didnt mean it all at you. i edited my response when i realized how i may have come off, i meant more in general i just have seen the response on NS for years and thought it was always a bit silly.
