3. Condition may vary depending on quality of degenerated or now healed ligament. Alast, the final outcome is the ligament might break. In that event ACL reconstruction will meet you needs. 2. Mucoid degeneration should heal with conservative management. If it has to. 1. Go for surgery if you break your ligament or if your performance is suffering due to present knee condition or if there is instability.
