I had an 80% ACL tear and meniscus damage, the doctor told me that I can carry on without a reconstruction but if run and play sports a lot in the future, there could be more damage, also I was obese. So I recovered to my full range of motion after the tear and for the reconstruction done. It’s nearly 20 months since I got the surgery done, I went through proper physiotherapy and recovery process. At the moment, I workout a lot, play sports for extending periods of time, hike and don’t feel much difference on my knees. I don’t know if not getting a surgery makes you to not do all the things I mentioned, but after the reconstruction and proper recovery, I do all activities as if it’s completely normal ! Just wanted to give my 2 cents about this subject and my experience with it.
