I received an ACL tear last month and I’m getting the surgery late September. I was wondering if this would be a problem in future lifting (i.e. squats/deadlifts). I really enjoy doing the three big lifts and was hoping to get into powerlifting sometime in the future.
I would hope that I could go 100% after a couple of months of rehab. I was wondering what other peoples experiences have been with such an injury, including post-op issues such as knee pain or loss of confidence.
P.S. I sustained this injury by landing straight legged playing volleyball and obtained a dislocated knee.
