At least you did it doing a real sports activity and probably with real effort. My wife's friend participated in a "corporate challenge" type soccer game. She was on the field for almost 30 seconds before her ACL went out. Same procedure as you described. Fairly quick rehab to get back on her feet. She wasn't going to be doing any sports again - not that she ever did but they fixed it just like yours will be. Not sure how long it takes to get back to a competitive level.

Good luck with it. Remember to look for a surgeon that does this procedure everyday. The "head of the department" isn't always the guy with the most practice in a particular procedure. Best if you can get in with the guy who works with the local professional sports teams. No marginal work done there.
