I wanted to know do Grade 3 ligament repair on there own or do you require surgery. I am planning ahead incase this is what will happen?

I will opt out so a different expert can assist you.

Hello,
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

still need help?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No you would like not be able to bear weight on this immediately after

The prognosis is good with surgery; most of the mobility and stability should return

It would be chronically unstable without surgery

They say there are no benifits operating directly after the injury as opposed to 3 months after; is this to allow ligamnet to repair?

yes and to assess how you are healing

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thank you. My last question. If you are sportive and very active person and have a muscular body mass;would it be prudent to get the operation even if the healing Was ok. Would this ensure a better chance of continuing active lifestyle again?
Thanks

not necessarily. No

some people can heal this and have great function

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
