Knee buckles 7 was after mcl, acl tears
« on: March 04, 2014, 06:37:19 AM »
I tore my acl completely, my mcl partially, my meniscus and suffered a slight tibial plateau fracture. 7 weeks later, fracture looking good, and i am rehabbing to prep for acl and meniscus surgery. OS told me to start weight bearing now, walk with two crutches, then ditch 1 crutch and then be walking! Well, I would like to! But I tried going to one crutch and my injured knee started buckling to the inside on the very first attempt! Not happening! That was a week ago and now I am terrified to try again. This was not a complete mcl tear so I thought, and it appears the OS thought I would be able to weight bear without it buckling. Does it usually take this long? Should I be wearing a brace? Should I just wait another week and try again? I do pretty well walking with two crutches now so at least I'm there. Advice please! Thanks.
