    Stay off the skis and spin on a trainer. Hopefully you can get things in order for fishing season as I have read enough to know how important it is to your life.
    Nice to see you have music to keep your mind engaged.

    Don't set "time frame" goals, your knee has a schedule of its own. Use what your doc and PT say as guidelines, but don't get too caught up in it.

    I did what Mofro says, rode the trainer 1/2 hr. twice a day and quad sets whenever I thought about it. Pretty much the same injury as yours, full ACL, partial MCL, meniscus both sides - my doc said he wanted the swelling gone and the leg at nearly full strength going into surgery, so I waited about 3 weeks.

    Nine months out from surgery this week, feels pretty good and skiing OK - I would give it 90% on groomers and 80% off. Still a bit of pain on icy & chattery stuff, or frozen debris, etc.

    What kind of things do I need to be doing to get ready for surgery. Ortho said PT to get ROM before surgery, what can I expect to be doing?
    Bummer man! ACLs suck.

    Your injury sounds like it has more complications than mine, but...

    You don't need an ACL to ski - my mom's been doing it for decades. I just kept skiing after a week or two of downtime. Skied mellow till May (torn in Feb), then had surgery. Kept my muscles strong and made recovery pretty quick - skiing at 5 months, cliffs at 6. But considering you tore yours already skiing mellow... that probably sounds way too scary for you? Heal up!

    From what I gather this really depends on the person and their particular physiology. I waited a month for my surgery and no way in hell I could ski nor did I feel any progress in stability of my knee. Just way too unstable. My knee buckled again just getting off of a bus. Other people like my good friend Crazy Terry skied for a decade with a brace and no acl because he had no insurance and presumably knees that tolerated it. His girlfriend could hardly walk with no ACL.

    Now I have to choose what kind of graft. Sawbones prefers strongly hamstring tendon.

    Both me and my son waited 2 months for surgery to heal up first. But you have more damage than we did. Vibes, heal up well
