Re: RC: When human ligaments tear...

 else experienced this type of ligament tear, and how long did it take before 
 your knee was strong enough to ride and condition?  Am I in for big problems 
 if I try to put this surgery off till the fall?  Thanks for any help.

Depends on the actual extent of the injury. ACLs are no fun--they can be weak 
for years and then go completely with a bad step. Have they been in 
arthrocopically to see how bad the injury is?   This is something you really 
don't want to mess around with--you could end up with knees like Joe Namath 
later in life. That is, no knees.
