What would happen if you completely tore your ACL and your mcl? How long would it take to recover?

In brief: Long rehabilitation

Tearing your mcl and acl typically requires surgical repair and extended physical therapy especially if you wish to continue to be physically active.
High level and professional athletes typically will need about 6-12 months to recover before they are released to full activity without restriction.
