Tore my left ACL twice playing basketball. second time I tore it I waited two years before I had it repaired in doing so I developed grade IV, (severe) arthritis of the weight bearing condyles. Therefore had to have whats called a microfracture procedure performed. Where the surgeon drills small holes into the bone to promote bleeding which then fills in the leison "damaged" tissue, cartilage to make a "patch" if you will not as good as real cartilage but I have not had a problem since. Was on crutches non weight bearing for 12 weeks. then an additional 1 year of personal physical therapy before I felt stable and strong enough to return to sports.
