I'm hoping you can share this on your blog and your readers can give me some advice.
I injured my PCL in a collision on the soccer field. I fell hard on my bent knee and had immediate pain. To my surprise I was able to get up and jog and played a few more minutes before coming out.
That was 2 and a half months ago. My knee hasn't gotten much better since then. The most pain is in sprinting and cutting hard, kneeling with my knee fully bent, and pulling down on my foot like taking off a shoe. I finally went to the doctor who suspected a torn PCL due to some movement and possibly a torn meniscus. He prescribed an MRI which I had and returned today for consultation. The diagnosis is a high grade tear and he suggests surgery. I can see on the MRI image what looks like a pretty bad tear, but not complete. I'm surprised because the pain doesn't seem that extreme and I'm not having a lot of instability.
After reading the comments I think I will get a second opinion. My main questions are around the options. I'm looking for experiences using a graft from quad vs hamstring vs cadaver. Thank you!
