But another thing, I'm confused how he was walking so regular like nothing was wrong with him at the end of the game. Of all the torn ACL's I've seen the athlete is on crutches or limping..
I guess we'll have to wait and see..
I fully tore my acl and part of my meniscus almost 2 years ago, and I walked around on it for 3 months before I got surgery.
ouch. was it painful getting around before you had surgery? so how did your recovery go?
It wasn't so much painful, as it was uncomfortable. Couldn't run far, or play ball outside of set shots. Walked with a bit of a limp, but outside of twisting, pivoting, turning on a dime, it didn't hurt much. Jumping just didn't happen though
ACL's are funny like that. You can go on without getting it taken care of, and live a full life, if your not an athlete of any sort. Your knee just kind of fills up with blood, so it just kind of acts like a cushion where the ligament used to be. Weird, huh?
As for the recovery, the first 2 weeks after surgery were just awful, pain-wise. But physical therapy was great. Hard, but great. I could really feel it getting stronger by the day. I had a setback with my meniscus about 6 months after, so that added to the recovery time. But I'm still doing exorcises, and I'm still not close to where I was before, although I can run and jump now. It's just stiffens up easily, and swells.
But I don't have Rondo's doctors, or work ethic. He'll be fine, sooner, rather than later. I'm not a good example.
