Hi, i will cut right into the story. I am 23 years old and i had a partial acl injury 9 months ago which my doctor decided not to handle with a surgery but instead told me to work out and strenghten my leg muscles and that it should be alright. I worked out for 3 months and got back to basketball, the sport i love the most, it's my passion and a part of my identity. It was working well for i'd say month and a half and then i had 2 injuries in less than a month and i underwent arthroscopy on my right knee.
After the surgery doc said that he had to remove most of my medial meniscus and that my ACL is now completely torn. I feel good now, i could ride a bike like a week after arthroscopy, i have no problem walking but i am still to test my knee on activites like running or something like that. My question is, could i make a comeback to sports like basketball and tennis, two sports i play the most but that are really not easy on the knee. If i, let's say go for a ACL reconstruction surgery and repair, could i play basketball, not until i am old, but till, let's say, my 30-35 years. Doc said that because of my lack of meniscus my knee is using up faster and that i could some day need a knee replacement.
So, what would you suggest there. I am about to meet with another doctor, but i just can't stop thinking about it and that i could really live a life without my favourite sports, i think that would change me as a person, to bring out something that brought and was bringing so much joy to much life.
