Hey guys,i tore my ACL when i was 13 (still am until April). It was the first day of hitting in football and we were doing a catch and tackle drill. When i was getting tackled i landed on my knee bent and felt my knee shift forward. I just walked it off but when i got home i could barely bend my leg. I went into my bed the wrong way and heard something pop! it was so much pain i started to scream. I went to my doctors about 3 days later and he told me i tore my ACL and was out for 6 weeks,and scheduled me a MRI 2 weeks later. After the MRI it took me another 2 weeks to go back to the doctors. He told me it was more serious than he thought and i needed surgery. He could of done the surgery but there was a chance he could close my growth plate. My doctor said i can have the surgery now or when my growth plate is fully closed,but he recommended Dr. Paul Saluan that took us 3 weeks to see him. When we saw him his exact words were "if you let me do this surgery there is a chance that the plate can close,but there is also a chance the sky can fall so it's a low possibility." He scheduled me for surgery on 9-29-09 which was 6 weeks later.Everything went successful and i am glad i chose him to do this process.the recovery is still going on and i recommend people just to take it easy after the surgery and just be patient.

just let it heal NEW
by: tarzan

Every injury takes time to heal after a successful surgery. One should always consult a doctor as soon as he/she has a pain anywhere in the body and once it is resolved all you need is some rest. If you do both these things you will recover pretty quickly. ICD 10 Coding

ACL Story
by: Anonymous

Trust me I know what your going through! I tore my ACl October 23, 2009 and had surgery November 23, 2009 it was the worst pain of my entire life after surgery! Then I tore my ACL June 28th 2011 and had surgery July 26 2011. When you have surgery a second time around its a lot easier because you know what's coming next. And when your choosing if you want your hamstring, or patela tendon or the cadaver choose the cadaver its so much easier and you recover so much faster. On my left knee is was like hell because I choose my patela tendon and on my right it was so much easier and faster because I choose the cadaver

dr saluan
by: dustin

I had doctor saluan also he did my right knee acl on 8/13/2010 and I'm not very happy. Its so hard to see him and I personally just don't think they tell you everything you need to know. I am like 9 months post op and still having pain, not walking straight etc... whenever I go to see him its like he's always in a rush to get out of the room and I can't ask him everything I need to. I ride motocross and I'm scared to do anything with this knee. Also I messed up my other knee during recovery. It pops on the side and when I straighten it or bend it it pops loud. I asked him and he just says its fine. I know its not fine it feels loose and idk what to do.

If you could reply in an email cause I prob won't remember this site. My email is heavydiesel369@gmail.com
