Ok I need some help and advice from people if possible. 2 months ago I was playing football and ruptured 90% of my ACL. I had an anthroscopy and they simply trimmed the stump. Obviously there is still 10% of the ACL remaining. However I am unable to twist without pain. I can jog comfortable but only for a short timE. I have had intensicve physio since but still I cannot do much in the way of sport. I cannot jump and land and twist or balance properly on the weak leg. I have to go back to the consultant in 2 months time and I was wanting some advice. Can I get reconstruction surgery even if there is not a complete rupture (like I said I have only ruptured 90%). I play in goals for a ladies football team and I have ambitions to play for Scotland as I have been involved in the past with the squads. Before the injury I would train 4-5 times a week plus matches and I want to get back to this level or as near as possible again.
I think the reconstruction might be my best bet if it is possible. Would I bring it up with my consultant when I see him or wait to see what he said. I was also wondering if I would be on a long waiting list and if anybody can tell me how long I may have to wait. I am also only 21 and a sports coaching university student and I am going into my 3 rd year and really get graded on my demonstrations and my taking part in the activities. I have worked hard at uni to get this far and I want this reconstruction done as soon as possible.
Please help me. The big question I really want answered if nothing else is if I can get this reconstruction even though I still have 10% of my ACL still attatched
