skywalkr, I just wonder how you know it's your MCL and nothing else? I had no pain when I tore my ACL.

Obviously without going to the doctor I have no clue if that is the actual issue but the place where the pain is located is where the MCL is located so I would say it is a safe assumption. The original injury was over three months ago and I didn't notice it again until a few days ago when I decided to hit the weights hard for legs. If it was more of an impact in my day to day life I would probably want to go to the doctor to be sure but for what it is I would rather try to make it feel better on my own.

I'll also bump this again to see for the all the people who posted in this thread if they feel they are at 100%? Does anyone regret the surgery they had?

definitely at 100%, and my repaired knee was measured stronger than non-repaired knee after 4 months of therapy. That was 17 years ago, and I have no problems with my knee now.

I have had a couple scares (one at a year out playing basketball, and one at 7 years out playing tackle football), but both were likely just scar tissue. I keep an ice pack to ice my knees down after a long run, but I think that is due to aging and not ACL repair.

Very cool. I feel I'm 100% as well. I don't think I would of been if I used the hamstring graft.


^I had the patellar tendon from a cadaver. That's not an or proposition .

Definitely no regrets. Can't tell any difference when I'm skiing, which is what I was most concerned with.

From time to time it definitely feels "off" or "different" and I think sometimes that's weather dependent. Also it feels odd sometimes if I'm just standing around (like at a party or something).

Surgery was almost 9 years ago for me (patella tendon).
