Innocuous rock garden dab in Sierra Nevada 10 days ago has torn my left ACL as confirmed by MRI yesterday and knee specialist has said surgery is a must with 6-12 months off the bike. It's hard to take in if I'm honest, it certainly wasn't the answer I was expecting.
I see others on here saying they just turned the surgery down and tried to physio their way through it. Has that worked? I just want to get back on the bike ASAP. No other damage to meniscus or other ligaments.
Is there hope?
