Another thing for Niall not having knee surgery immediately. From own experiences (3 ACL, 2 menisci and a torn tendon later) u don't fix stuff while the knee is swolen, esp after forceful trauma. Pt1

Pt2. The liquids and inflammation slow down the healing process and the risk for additional unwanted growth of scar tissue rises. Waiting for at least 8-10 weeks while doing strengthening PT is recommended.

Pt3. The view on that is often desoriented, bc sports stars obv don’t do that, bc every moment they don’t compete is lost money, so they risk it….. Someone who can, should def wait it out….

Thank you for the medically sound insight!
