I've partial thickness ACL tear along its femoral attachment. I'm 19 years old and a sportsman too i can't run from almost last 3 month. please help
See a specialist: Partial ACL tears do happen but are very uncommon. Often a radiologist will make that diagnosis but does not mean it is correct. See a Sports Orthopedic surgeon who can give you a correct diagnosis based on the MRI and a good exam. Even if it is torn, pain is uncommon with running after 3 months.

Had arthroscopic ankle debridement & modified brostrom 7 wks ago. Feel pain in ankle when full weight bearing. Is this normal? How long?
Yes: 7 weeks is not that far out for foot and ankle surgery. Since you had surgery on something that you walk and bear weight on, pain, soreness, and swelling can occur for several months...sometimes even 6 months. Soreness is definitely to be expected at this point. I would say that any remaining sharp pain should begin to improve during the next few weeks. Also, make sure to see your surgeon too. ...Read more

You're weight-bearing orders are as instructed by your orthopedic surgeon who at the time did your operation in particular your chondroplasty will give you those weight-bearing instructions . Physical therapy as an outpatient basis to improve strength flexibility and range of motion while you're limiting your weight-bearing is recommended.

Technically, with the right transducer and a trained operator, ultrasound may be able to see these structures pretty well, but it is likely to miss anything but major abnormalities. Mri is the best test to evaluate the cartilage and menisci. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had an ankle sprain 6 months back. It still pains if i standand walk for 5 minutes. The MRI reported torn talocalcanealligament with partial tear of post.Talofibular ligament. Whatshould i do?
See specialist.: It is not common to have tear of those ligaments. Typically if the posterior talofib is torn, the anterior talofib and calcaneaofib also torn. The talocalcaneal lig also hard to tear. This may mean very high level ankle sprain and a foot/ankle specialist is needed. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Are there any ankle-derived symptoms that differentiate posterior tibial tendonitis from posterior tibiotalar ligament tear?
Can't stand on toes: With posterior tibial tendinitis (pttd), pain is present when attempting to stand on your toes.
