I'm a little freaked out by my upcoming surgery. Think I'm reading too many negative reviews on the Internet. A lot of folks saying their knee was never the same or had pain. Has anyone had a successful ACL surgery?
I did find a few interesting medical websites. My trainer says I should stop reading stuff on the Internet because I know everything I need to know about the surgery already and reading any more will just freak me out.

    Relax and listen to your trainer and doctor. It's a very common surgery with a high success rate. Of course any surgery has potential risks. Consider that people who had bad experiences are more likely to write. Successful people don't write because they are too busy moving on their finally pain free knee. My husband had ACL surgery four years ago and he's fine. I know many other people who also had that surgery. Not one regrets their decision. Good luck!
