I tore my left ACL in 1997 and my right in 2004. I had both reconstructed and all was well until two weeks ago... I managed to re-tear my left ACL and sprained my foot mountain biking. My orthopedic surgeon wants to try rehab without surgery. He said the success varies from person to person, but that some people don't have instability problems without an ACL. He said that as long as the rehab goes well, I should be all set to ski this winter. Giving up skiing is not an option, so if the rehab doesn't go well I will have surgery, but I am hoping that isn't the case. I am just wondering, does anyone else ski without an ACL? Any insight/advice?
