After getting back to staging, I iced it and was walking on it. It wasn't even that painful until I went to load up my bike. I went to climb into my truck. I stepped up with my left (good leg) onto the truck bed, and as I tried to maintain most of my weight on my good leg, I lightly pushed off the ground with my right leg there was intense pain in my knee, and I made it into the bed of my truck, laying there writhing in pain.
My knee doesn't seem to have a lot of play in it side to side or front to back, but has stiffness when extended or bent. Also, I feel some pain on the inside of my knee and there is a little swelling.
Trying to figure out what I did to it... any ideas? Thanks.

Doc told me a lot of people live without one (ACL) but the general opinion is it will lead to further knee injury, search for exercises you can do as a strong knee will be key with or without surgery. My pre op and post op PT were about the same.

If it is a torn ligament, you could damage the knee further and be in pain for the rest of your life. Or worse, not be able to ride again. If your knee is ok, you are out a few bucks.

How much is this Thai doctor for an ACL repair? I'd seriously talk to Doc Mark before doing anything like that.

The only time my knee really hurts is when I'm in bed rolling around. It's pretty stable, although I've learned not to push it too far. My recovery seems to be moving in the right direction.
You're correct about one thing though...I need a job w/health insurance.
