Default anyone ever tore their ACL.????

Freaking Gaper coming off the lift just smashed into me and I injured my knee. I have school and won't be able to see a doctor till later this week. Just wanted some input on how it felt, what did you do about it and how fast did u start riding again. I hope this isn't the case for me I don't wanna lose this season, I've been enjoying it way too much. Thanks

Why were you anywhere near where someone getting off the lift could hit you?

Haven't torn an ACL, but I did tear two ligaments in my ankle playing soccer and going to the hospital was the only thing on my mind - so it doesn't sound like you tore anything.

Here's what I'm thinking though, in a year from now, will a few hours of school work matter or the fact that you have a bum knee? I would see a doctor asap instead of asking an online forum, just for the peace of mind.

At jack frost pa. There are 2 lifts that go up simultaniously next to each other. I was with my buddy on the left one and a dude was on the right one. Coming off the lift the dude on the right decided to turn left (I don't think he knew what he was doing) just went directly towards me and I had a bumper cars effect between him and my buddy. I fell opposite to the bored rotation. And there went my great day

the problem is I'm kinda under a strict federal program at school and I need 100% attendance do pass any of my courses. Sucks but a price to pay for a future.

I tore mine in 2006 skateboarding. The only thing on my mind was "emergency room," and I couldn't put any weight on the leg at all. About 1/3 of people have this response, 1/3 have severe pain/swelling but are able to put weight on it, and 1/3 feel "wobbly," at least until they eat shit and destroy all the rest of their knee ligaments too.

Get checked out ASAP if it's more than "sore." I hope you have insurance. $26,000 for surgery, custom athletic brace, and rehab, and that was in 2006.

sounds like you just bruised it up. i was in a motorcycle accident in june '09, i broke my patella in half and severed my mcl...after emergency surgery that night i couldnt walk for 4 months, and rehab for 9 months before i was almost 100%...my knee still feels different it doesnt hold me back but its not 100% either. go to a doctor after school, a walk in clinic should be able to tell you if you messed it up or not.

I have torn my ACL twice, and pretty much knew I had to go to the doc right away. My knee was all over the place, and it sounds like you are getting it checked out so hopefully you will be alright so you can board some more. The next best thing I can add is to get in the gym and strengthen all the muscles around your knee. It will only help you out if something dumb happens again! Good Luck.

Like everyone said if you stood on it you'd know instantly it's not right. I have a tear in my MCL and possibly my Meniscus right now all I do is slap the brace on and eat aspirin to get me through the day.
