No lie. 2 doctors and 2 MRIs have confirmed that my torn ACL is a very old injury. If I remember correctly it happened over a year ago. After the swelling went down and the pain went away, I played with a big box store hinged knee brace and kept playing. When I went in recently because my knee felt "looser", the doc gave me a professional custom brace and said keep playing since "it can't get worse" and I'm part of the 20% that can adapt to a torn ACL. He also said surgery is an option if I WANT TO (huh???) He said "Why put yourself completely out of tennis for 6 months to a year when you're already playing with a torn ACL and seem fine?" Besides the brace being a little bulky, is it even worth it to get the surgery?
