Complete ACL tear

So go for surgery.
meanwhile you can start doing quadriceps strengthening exercises to keep your knee feeling food.
I can understand your concern.
Since there is a complete ACL tear and also grade 2 lateral collateral ligament damage, surgical trratment is the only option.
Complete ACL tear will not heal by other means in my opinion.
Consult a orthopedician in person for further evaluation and management.
