    The doctor is very impressed. I'm still not allowed to walk. But on the 19th they will let me start putting some weight on it.
    One side affect is that from sitting so long I now sit on my back as I am running out of ass. lol. The up side is I have not experienced any pain that is bother some. As a matter of fact I haven't taken any pain meds since the 1st week. Thank you very much for asking.

    Wish I could tear my ACL, get me out of work for about 3 months until I get out of the Military, I guess u could call me a Malingering shitbag, but I am tired of working partys also known as chain gangs for u Civs

    That is a very popular question around here lately. lol. I have well over half of my first bottle left and 2 more to get.


    I'd aim for one of the other ligaments in your knee. Still out of work but would allow you to walk. My uncle had surgery yesterday at 1 and was able to walk to the car at 5. Me still have my left leg and 2 crutches. Really cuts down on my activities. lol.

    I tore everything BUT my ACL on mothers day of '08... Triple jumping at the divisional track meet (ranked 2 in the state), so not cool. I opted to not have the surgery and I underwent A LOT of Physical Therapy. Now I am regretting not having the surgery. I have yet to fee like I am "Healed", so if I were to do it again, I would get the surgery. Best of luck to you, and let us know how it goes! You will be better off than me. I couldn't walk at all until 3 months after... 6 months till I could walk normal.
