ACL tear in my right knee occurred while playing tennis and within 2 years of child birth, where I suffered from HELLP. Shortly thereafter, I ended up tearing my ACL in the other knee. I only operated upon my right knee, which has never ever recovered fully, because of constantly developing scar tissue and has been in pain ever since the surgery. My left knee has fared better without undergoing any surgery.
