Thanks for writing to us.

Grade 1 and grade 2 ligament tear can be managed conservatievly while grade 3 tear require operative management in most cases.

I suggest you to get an MRI of affected part done to see the grade of tear. If it is already done , please upload the reports so that I can help you in better ways.

Hope this helps you.

Wishing you speedy recovery...
