ACLR with Cadaver, will I ever fly again?

Question

Hello everyone,

I am very, very new to this sport, I've had 2 tandems and 2 solos in April and then, bam, tore my acl on a trampoline. Currently I am 3 months post with a cadaver graft and itching to get out there. I wanted to try a tandem but both the PT and doc say no.....so my plan is to wait the full 9 months and start over with ground school in March.

So my question to you all is, with those of you with knee injury how do you deal with landings (I was terrified of the landing before my injury)

And the bigger question will I every be able to jump again?

did you stand up the tandem? No shame in sliding in intentionally... Food for thought. I say this because I jump with a woman with a double knee replacement.

I've had someone else's ligaments in both my knees since 2010.  Still jumping :D
