It’s been a while since your knee has had that type of pounding. Use ice and ease your way into playing ball. Good luck, Mya

    • : I torn my ACL in September 2000 and had key hole surgury hopefully to fix it. The opp was not succesfull so i am going under the knife again late October my question is how soon can i expect to play football again?
