Default Can I ride on a torn ACL?

Has anyone knowingly ridden a season with a torn ACL?
I tore my ACL, and had minor tears to my medial and lateral miniscus last April. Thanks to delay tactics from my insurance company I just got an MRI on 7/23. I know I need ACL reconstruction. The recovery time will have me out until at least Feb 1st. I asked my Orthopedic Surgeon if I could postpone the surgery til after the season. He said yes, very warily, if I rode conservatively, i.e. no jumps, parks, etc.. I ride @ 50 east coast days/year.
