Long story short.
2015, suffered a root tear of my meniscus. Had it surgically repaired.
In October 2016, I was skating and felt a pop in same knee. Figured I did it again, and fought through it. Noticed I couldn't push off the leg going up steps. About 4 weeks ago, I was at the gym, and noticed my knee was clicking when I was doing elliptical work. Then one day at home, I turned awkwardly, and felt a pop and searing pain in the same spot, and couldn't put weight on it. So I grabbed my brace and started to wear it again. Made an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon. Saw him Tuesday. He said I more than likely retore the meniscus. He then asked if I did any ACL damage when I tore the meniscus the first time. Told him the doctor didn't say I did. So he wants me to have an MRI done, and under diagnosis, it says "acute medical meniscus tear; acute knee pain; (and wasn't expecting this) New ACL tear.
Is it possible to tear the ACL and still be able to walk (albeit with a limp and pain)? I can't push off the leg and have all my weight when going up stairs.
