Title: ACL Surgery - Yes or No?
Post by: woody on December 14, 2004, 04:10:49 AM
I injured my knee in Aug. My surgeon didn't operate until October. My ACL ligament was rolled up under my knee cap. He removed it and has had me in physio therapy ever since. We have ordered a brace, but he hasn't mentioned reconstructive surgery. I deliver oil and need strong knees to pull a 150 ft hose through the snow banks.  Should I ask for reconstructive surgery? Would I be able to work in those conditions without the surgery?
