    Hi, Sorry to hear about your injury, I cannot advise what you should do but I think you must discuss all your options with your doctor . Best of luck.

    Hi, I'm afraid that's something that only your doctor or surgeon could comment on as we are all only patients ourselves and it would be very wrong of anyone to suggest otherwise. Please follow your doctors advice as once you know what your dealing with it may help your stress levels

    That is something only a professionialy trained ortho should be advising you about and then you may need a couple of opinions. I would do that as soon as possible and avoid activities that could further compromise the recovery. The tiniest slip could complete the tear. I would have to say that most on here would be leery of trying to answer your question for fear of causing further complications

    I agree with all the posts on here.

    Much as I am sure we would all like to help yu by answering your question this is something none of us are sure about and we do not want to be giving you wrong advice.

    If you are trying to avoid surgery it may be worth going to an osteopath or someone who can help to heal this problem without surgery.

    Take care and keep in touch
