Re: What to avoid with torn ACL (surgery not an option - now)

First of all, thank you for the feedback.

I should have been clearer. I tore the ACL 10 years ago - I had to put off trying to get the surgery until this past year because of work issues. (I also have a rider on the knee because I was honest when I took out the policy. I took out the policy because of this experience. I don't ever want to be in a situation again where I don't get a medical treatment that I need.)

EVERY doctor I have seen in the States has been shocked that they didn't do surgery at the time of the injury. Unfortunately, now I am going to have to duke it out with the insurance company to get the surgery.

In the meantime, I am doing CrossFit!
