Tore my ACL playing soccer 6 years ago. Just started on my job and with their insurance, needless to say the insurance was not happy they got stuck with a $40k bill.
I went the cadaver route and had a ligament put in mine. Been great ever since, rebuilt knee is stronger than the other knee at this point. I also tore the medial meniscus and sprained all of the ligaments and tendons in the knee as well. PT sucked, I was walking 2 days after surgery and climbing stairs at work 5 days later. Those PT girls must of had it in for me, they would try to bend my knee straight out barely 7 days after surgery. I think that is why they only employed hot little young PT's at this place, so I wouldn't want to kill then...lol
40k holy smokes
From what I seen mine was around 14k for the surgery.
PTs are mean I should know I am married to one just kidding
