the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.

Step 1. Post on sports blog. Check... Sorry to hear that though, good luck on your recovery.
I am an orthopaedic surgeon and I would encourage you to have ACL reconstruction if you want to remain active doing impact activities. The surgery has a very high success rate if you do your rehab. Unless you are content with being less active there is no good reason not to do it. Do your homework and find a good surgeon. If you have surgery, my advice is to have an autograft (your tissue) instead of an allograft (cadaver). The studies show hamstrings and patella tendons to be equal (there are some pros and cons of each). Most surgeons have a preference of one or the other. Have the surgeon you pick do the one he does the most of (and likely the best). Good luck.
...and came to MGoBlog for advice?
You sir, are awesome.

Haha yeah, I am waiting or my wife to get the car and figure I'd ask the smartest community out there

Well if you're waiting for your wife to get the car, your options may be limited. Do you have a ball point pen?
Orthopaedic surgeon here....fix it. Rehab to get your range of motion back first. I recommend autograft, not cadaver graft. Patellar tendon is my choice but hamstrings are good too. You cannot ski without an ACL without risking repeat injury.
Two words I hope a doctor never utters to me: cadaver graft.
He'd be better off checking an Iowa blog. You won't find a more experienced fanbase. You can always check with Purdue if you want a second opinion, though.

check out my past couple posts, specifically my last one which focuses on surgical options.
If you're someone who wants to continue to ski/ play cutting sports / etc , surgery is a excellent option. However, if you're ok with walking or jogging for exercise, you may be able to get away with going non surgical.
From the sounds of things, you're one of the people for whom a cadaver graft may be an option at least worth looking into
Take a quick cortisol shot and get back in the game, the team needs ya
You sir win the "advice you probably shouldnt take from random, unqualified strangers without beneift of any medical training or your personal health history" award.
Mostly hoping to hear from people that have been through it before. Already saw a doctor and will be seeing another one when I get back. But it seems like the decision to have surgery depends.
I hate to the guy to burst your bubble of internet trust but sometimes people make things up and claim things that arent true.

Dude is committed. don't fall for his siren call
Just out of curiosity, if the doc gave you an option, it couldn't have been a complete tear, right?
I tore mine at 19. The surgery was more I trust e back then. My advice, if you wish to remain active is to have surgery. The recovery takes time, but I can do all kinds of stuff without a brace, including firefighting.
The surgery was more INTRUSIVE back then. Stupid auto correct!
thought i'd throw you a bone with a serious response since there arent too many on here... i tore mine, grade 3 and also did other major damage at the same time, bout 8 yrs ago. surgery went well, scars are pretty minimal, and after rehab, was absolutely back to 100%. once you get your mri results, your doc will be better able to advise. its a pretty common injury now, your doc should be well versed on the topic. i think if its grade 1 or 2 you might be able to get away without surgery, but you might want it anyways.
Thanks that is helpful, I wi ask what grade when I go see the specialist this week
Post of the year.
Walk it off
Don't forget to rub some dirt on it first.
"The unexamined life is not worth living." Socrates.
Rub some 'tussin on it.
not just "douchey" MGoBlog user, but now TRUSTED MGoBlog user
No "walking it off".
No rubbing dirt into it.
And no, no "rubbing some 'tussin (?) on it".
Maybe, but only temporarily, duct tape might help.
What you really need, though, is Snake Oil! Anyone here know of a good Snake Oil Salesman?
Here you go. Should be a quick and easy trip.
I put up a tough front, but deep down I just want to be held.
Spray some Windex on it.
Go take a visit and see if you get a commitable offer.
"Are you an official here?Because you've officially given me a boner."
A little dirt on it, put on a band-aid and get your ass back on the slopes, pain is just fear leaving the body. In all seriousness...get surgery, otherwise your knee will fall off later in life.

Especially if there was some negligence involved by the resort.
Even if there wasn't any negligence involved by the resort. Why get hung up on negligence? The guy needs some money, right? Let Saul git 'er done. Better call Saul!

"It would be a travesty, it would be ridiculous to all of a sudden come back and get the feeling back, get the health back, feel good again and then all of a sudden go throw some other colors on my shirt and go coach."
Do some physical therapy before the surgery. The better shape your leg is in before surgery, the faster you'll recover.
When choosing a surgery, I would recommend going the patellar tendon route.
I'm speaking from testing my ACL in May 2010 (my graduation present) playing soccer at Elbel Field. Had surgery the Tuesday after graduation and was playing soccer again in September.
Best of luck. Hope that info helped.

"Doctors said it was my choice Re: surgery. Recommendations?"
Need a bit more to go on. Is it your first knee injury? Is it a partial tear etc.
Otherwise, swinging a bit wildly in terms of any sort of recommendations.
If the haters don't hate you then you're doing something wrong. - David Cone
First knee injury, looks like full tear but they told me to o see Another doctor one the sweelling goes down
That's actually very reasonable advice; until there is clarity in your diagnostic imaging the ability to consider rehab outcomes vs. surgical outcomes won't be clear.
Sadly, it is what it is given the potential for a complete ACL tear.
I didn't finish medical school, but I'd let the swelling go down then have the surgery and go to the PT sessions.
If I tell you it's Easter, you better start looking for eggs.
Some folks call it a sling blade, I call it a kaiser blade.
Active how? You should be able to continue most activities without the surgery. Pivot activities/sports (Bball, maybe tennis) will be difficult. However you are leaning, WAIT. Your pain from the initial injury & bone bruising will heal & then you'll know what your symptoms are
As a student who was pre-med for about a week and therefore highly qualified in this department, I suggest self-operation to save some money. Not too hard to do.
It all depends on how good you are at this. Note the "skill game" part.
I always hate to be the first serious post in a thread. Particularly after two dozen funny ones.
Prof of knee and shoulder surgery at UM Med School did my ACL/LCL reconstruction in 2002. ACL rupture and LCL avulsion fracture while skiing in Utah. Autograft.
Did all my rehab at UM MedSport at Domino's Farms. Also did 10 weeks of pre-op rehab before surgery a few days after graduation.
Rehab sucked, and I was in a lot of pain post-op after all the drilling in my bones. Took 2 years to get all the way back, but I made it back to ski at full speed and play basketball with no noticeable impairment.
Get the surgery. At UM Hospital. And do your rehab.
