Two years ago, I slipped in snow at the top of this cliff and tore an ACL, but I just thought it was sprained. I was by myself and couldn't walk on it, but luckily I had a parachute to get down. After a couple of months of ice and ibuprofen, it got mostly better.
But that knee was always a little weird after that and seemed to get tweaked a lot, and there were a few things it didn't really do.
My brother finally made me go to a doctor to get it checked last summer...no ACL! I got a double bundle hamstring graft last November.
I have a brand new knee ligament and it works great :)
The first base jump back is exciting....
