My MCL and lcl are torn but i'm 17 years old. I'm very active should I get surgery or wait it out
I tore my MCL a year ago and the other day while exiting a vehicle my knee popped out and back into place. Could I have torn it again?
Yes: I suspect you actually have more than just a mcl tear. I bet you have an associated acl incompetence, likely related to your original injury that was diagnoses as an isolated mcl tear. If your knee felt like it came at a place just getting out of a car, this describes functional instability which is more commonly seen with acl combined injuries. The acl and mcl are commonly injured together. ...Read more
Bout 3M ago torn my mcl/acl . Bending about 3/4 the way but pops when straighten .. Most time no pain pop.. Will it heal without surgery?
No: The ACL ligament will not heal on its own. Even when surgery is done, it is not repaired. Another structure, usually a tendon, is harvested and used in its place. If a person is low demand, they can sometimes do ok with out surgery, alrhough they may need a brace. Most reasonably active people need surgery as the ACL is the major stabilizer of the knee. ...Read more

No: As previous physicians have stated it is unwise to play with a torn mcl. The mcl , medial collateral, ligament, is a stabilizer for the inner side of your knee. It also helps to protect the acl (anterior cruciate ligament) which if torn does require surgical repair. Healing of a completely torn mcl ligament may take from 6-12 weeks. Lesser injuries to the ligament may result in less play time loss. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
