I had to get surgery because it was a full tear. I remembered pre-surgery I was doing some stretches and my kneecap just slid away from its position and then back again. Thats how f-ked up it was.

True, it was never the same again. the knee area just doesn't feel as strong and secure and if I overexert there will be pain and soreness. "Luckily" it was the right knee and I use my left leg for layups since im right-handed. I try not to use only the right knee to jump, usually left or both.
