I did see the images and it isn’t attached. The way it was explained is that it can stay like that, a person can function without an acl. He told me it would be 8 months to recover from the acl surgery and the best course of action is to do physio for 3 months and if it isn’t stable enough than to do surgery at that point. Sounded reasonable at the time. But now that I have thought about it I have realized that I want it fixed to how it was not just acceptable. My benefits only cover 9 sessions of physio so if I use them now and get surgery in 3 months there’s no physio left for after. Also I have instance for mortgage and truck payments but you have to be off work for 8 consecutive weeks (been off for 7 so far. That’s the only way I would be able to afford being off for the surgery. Also I’m only 30 and play hockey, baseball etc… I don’t want to have to worry every time I’m playing/ running around with my kids. I have an appointment to see another specialist but not for 2 weeks. I’m very frustrated
