Six month turn around is incredible!! It’s crazy how far medicine has come in the past few years. Torn ACL used to take 12 months Atleast then it’s turned into 9-12 months and now crazy 6 months?!?!? Insane!

Many times there is additional damage beyond the ACL. Yes, the ACL is the slowest to heal, but recovery can be more complex if there is additional damage: patellar, MCL, meniscus, etc. So while an ACL tear is not a "simple" injury, if there is no additional damage it can be a "simple" recovery.

My daughter had 3 tears including her ACL in 2016, and her recovery was just about what you quoted. And because of reinjuring the meniscus during recovery, she still has a slight limp.

Glad Amari is coming along nicely.
