Hello Sampangm
Thank you for getting in touch with us. As I see, you have been diagnosied with grade 2 ACL injury. These kind of injuries are pretty tough to manage. As you mentioned, there is no issue with stability and pain is infrequently seen. Pain is usually aggravated if you indulge in strenuous activities like playing, running, climbing etc. Management of ACL injury depends on many factors. They include age of the patient, profession of the patient, pain etc. Orthoscopy is the definitive treatment for this type of injury. However, it can be delayed for a significant period of time if there is no significant morbidity. Therefore we would recommend you to keep in touch with your Orthopedician on a regular basis to let him know about the status of your knee. You should also avoid indulging in strenuous activities for sometime. Hope this helped.
