Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Ligaments are thick fibers or veins that have strong links between bone and bone. There are 2 ligaments in the knee joint, namely anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL). The two ligaments connect the femur with the shin in the lower leg. One function of the knee joint ligaments is to maintain the stability of the knee joint itself.
Ligament injuries often occur due to sports and traffic accidents. Ligament injury requires surgery to repair it. As the doctor has advised you. Especially for ligaments in the knee joint. Because the knee is a part of the weight of the body, it is very important to restore health. However, for every part of the body that is injured, it will be difficult to be able to achieve normal, at least what is expected is to be able to reach 90 percent as normal. Especially if the operation has been postponed for years. Handling operations can still be done, but complete healing is even more difficult to achieve than if surgery is immediately performed. However, the doctor will try very well to restore the function of your knee joint, as well as relieve pain, limited movement and swelling experienced.
