Default Re: Cruz' body rejected an ACL from a dead guy. Is his career at the top finished?

as a marathon runner i was sidelined 6 weeks because of a little rupture in my leg and started mountainbiking for that time to stay active
made a bad fall on the bike and the PCL from my right knee was completely torn off
the accident happened in 2006
i also received an PCL from a dead person and it was rejected
the second operation was succesfull
doctors told me that a PCL replacement was much harder to come back from then a ACL
don't run as fast as i used to but that is because i no longer have the time to train intensively
the mobility of my leg however never came back 100 %
i still cannot sit on my knees when i have to clean something because it hurts
for a fighter with his footwork who often moves in circles and sideways this kind of injury is bad news
hope he comes back as an elite level athlete
