Patient : Me...51... active, and healthy. Due to a minor bike accident I hyperextended my knee. My knee swelled to double its size. No broken bones, but likely ACL damage. No MRI due to no insurance, after 2 months in a full leg brace, and now and now 30 more days walking on it it is almost normal. still a bit tender and still feels a little unstable, but at least I can walk normally. How long can I wait before I have this repaired surgically?
