Default AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! ! ! ! Not good ! !

Well guy's look like my bow season has come to an abrupt end today. Here is was trying to insert a string leech on my bow, I went to turn around and pop crack and snap. On the floor I go. Went to the hospital, looks like I tore my ACL in my knee[:@][:@]. Tonight was going to be the first night to hunt. What a total drag.

You know how much force it takes to completely tear your ACL? Usually a ton. I tore both of mine playing college football. I could not imagine tearing an ACL by turning around......put some ice on it, it is probably just partially tore. I know me, I would be out hunting even if my ACL was torn.

Did you already have an MRI done? Or did some Dr. just palpate the area and tell you his diagnosis. If you went to the ER and the on duty Dr. is who gave you the news, I would wait til the MRI results came in before you jump to conclusions. There are some ER Dr.'s out there who will say just about anything. I mean they are going to refer you to a specialist, so who cares if they are right or not.

Sorry, just haven't had good results with ER doctors.

BTW, I am a coach, so I know how they tend to err on the side of caution.

Besides ,without an MRI it could be a PCL, LCL, MCL, or ACL. Hell it may even be your meniscus. Sorry, just sounds like you got some off the wall answer.

I am going with JB on this one--I say its your outer meniscus. Probably from an old injury you never new you had or maybe some weak cartilage.
