See ORS: You apparently have torn your acl and medial meniscus. You should see a competent knee surgeon and discuss your options. At the very least u would need to have a knee 'scope and repair / resect your torn meniscus. @ age 27 most knee surgeons would recommend acl reconstruction as well ; esp.If u are active, have children, etc.And to 'protect' a potential meniscus repair.Best of luck!
