I tore mine in June 03. Didn't get it diagnosed until yesterday though.
Dr said it might be repairable but probably not. If it is, it'll take 6 months to heal, 6 wks of which I'll be on crutches. If it is not repairable, the procedure is easy I'm told and recovery time is a mere 3 wks.
I'm worried either way how this may affect my activities, particularly hiking and backpacking. I'm already ultralight and in the mood to go hyperlight so my load will be taken care of. I'm just curious what others have experienced with this type of injury.
Any input would be appreciated.
