Hi
To your first question collateral ligament may have healed because it was partial tear.
to your second question anaesthesia for ACL repair is spinal anaesthesia which is given at low back in which very small needle is introduced into sub arachnoid space and local anaesthetic injected into CSF, this will allow pain free surgery. no drug is injected into bone marrow for anaesthesia. dont worry its very safe.
take care
