Find a kick ass physical therapist that will really push you. American healthcare sucks at preventative medicine but for surgery it's the best in the world. Athletes come back from nasty shit all the time, it's just a matter of wanting to endure the pain of physical therapy. When you do start riding again get a good knee brace.
Yea luckily I have established a pretty high tolerance for pain from years of playing rugby and riding dirtbikes.
when your a man sometimes you wear stretchy pants in your room just for fun
