Doctor insights on:
Tore My Acl
Technically no: Once the meniscus tears it typically doesn't heal. A majority of it has poor blood supply with little intrinsic healing capability. Even if the tissue remains torn it can stop hurting and as far as you're concerned it will be "healed". If the pain continues for more than 8 wks and especially if you have catching and locking, see a surgeon. A simple arthroscopy may relieve your pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I tore my ACL (complete tear, patella tendon), MCL (minor tear, bioscrews and stitches), and meniscus (had to trim 1/3). How long before I can run?

I had ACL & meniscus reconstruction on my right knee 2 months ago. Got pushed into pool landed on right leg, hurt for a minute. Retore meniscus?
Depends.: Is the knee swelling up again? Does you knee get "stuck" or locked? Does you knee feel loose again? If you answered yes, it might be. If it just happened, wait to see if those signs develop. If the pain goes away quickly, most likely nothing to worry about. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
3 days ago got new acl and bucket handle meniscus repaired. masturbated and leg buckled and stretched. Could that retore meniscus and stitches?
Sorry, I miss read-: -the question. I read retore as restore, so my comment was out of line. If U had just omitted the masturbation part it made more sense. Yes the fact that Ur knee buckled could very well have caused a disruption of the repair. U should get back 2 Ur operating surgeon & tell him/her about the buckling, & leave out the other part. ...Read more
Tore ACL 3 years ago. since then always had tightness in hamstrings. twisted my knee few days back and hamstrings hurt but healed. knee feels loose?
Review with your doc: If you notice any instability particularly with squatting, rotating, or walking down stairs there is a possibility that something happened to your repaired ACL. This may be particularly the case if your knee is swollen - suggesting some sort of inflammation in the joint. This is something that your orthopedic surgeon may want to know about. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mri shows I have torn ACL & meniscus tear. Tear was repaired in oct'13. My knee keeps giving out & i keep falling. I am 68.Is ACL surgery safe for me?
Difficult and rare: It is fairly rare and difficult to tear both an acl and lateral collateral a the same time without tearing other structures. When it does happen, the knee is usually quite unstable, and would not be able to function as a unit. Most of these end up with an early acl reconstruction with repair or reconstruction of the torn parts of the lateral collateral complex. ...Read more
No, but often: The lateral (fibular) collateral ligament is uncommonly injured, but if it is injured in the setting of other ligament injuries (acl, pcl), it needs to be reconstructed to help prevent the other ligament surgeries from stretching out over time. If it is injured in isolation, it can be treated in a hinged knee brace x 6 wks and may heal on its own. Stress xrays can be used to measure if it heals. ...Read more
Yes: Ligament injuries are classified as grade 1 (sprain), grade 2 (partial tear), or grade 3 (complete tear). The greater the severity, the greater the swelling. If it is a sprain, it may not swell right away. If it is a significant injury to a ligament inside your knee, e.g. The ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), it will bleed and the knee to swell right. This should be checked out by a physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
