Acl reconstruction is not mandatory. If you are attending sports and late age some will get early osteo artritis. So acl reconstruction is not mandatory.

Decision depends on her overall health and activity level. If she is fit and active than operation is needed. If not much active and other health issues then conservative approach is best. For more scientific information feel free to ask

sciatica

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Pune
Prolapsed Disc
Also known as slipped disc, herniated disc or sciatica. The discs are the shock absorbers of your spine. When they are injured the inner soft part of the disc can protrude out through a tear in the outer lining of the disc. This disc material can press on the nerves in the spinal column, injuring them through direct pressure and causing inflammation.
The most common age to develop a disc prolapse is between the ages of 30-50 years., twice as many men as women are affected. Prolpased discs occur mainly in the low back (lumbar) spine. Less than I in 20 cases of back pain are due to a disc prolapse, most are due to mechanical back pain. (see section back pain).
Symptoms
A slipped disc is characterised by sudden, severe back pain that is often made worse by movement and which can usually be eased by lying down flat.
Nerve root pain (sciatica) can also occur because a nerve is trapped or irritated by a prolapsed disc. Although the problem is in the back, patients experience pain along the course of the nerve, for example, down a leg to the calf or foot.
With a prolapsed disc, the sciatic nerve is most commonly affected. The sciatic nerve is a large nerve that is made up from several smaller nerves that come out from the spinal cord in the lower back and travels down each leg. The irritation or pressure on the nerve may also cause pins and needles, numbness or weakness in part of a buttock, leg or foot.
In rare cases, cauda equina syndrome can occur. This is a disorder where the nerves at the very bottom of the spinal cord are trapped. It can cause low back pain as well as problems with bowel and bladder function and weakness in one or both legs. These symptoms need urgent medical treatment to prevent permanent damage to the nerves that supply the bladder and bowel.
A large number of people can have a prolapsed disc without any symptoms if it doesn’t trap or irritate the nerve.
Investigation
A doctor will normally be able to diagnose a prolapsed disc from the symptoms and by examining the patient.
In most cases, no tests are needed, as the symptoms often settle within a few weeks.
Tests such as x-rays or scans may be advised if symptoms persist. In particular, an MRI scan can show the site and size of a prolapsed disc. This information is needed if surgery is being considered

Source of back pain in your case is the intervertebral disc bulge causing pressure over spinal cord and nerve roots. You have not mentioned details of your wife's problem like duration of pain or associated symptoms like weakness of legs or bladder / bowel incontinence. Treatment depends on duration of symptoms and neurological symptoms. Such disc bulge generally responds to rest, anti inflammatory drugs and exercises within 12 weeks of onset. In cases where symptoms persists beyond 12 weeks or progress intervention is needed. You can consult an Interventional Pain specialist in such situation and get treatment called epidural steroid injection. In this procedure anti inflammatory drugs (steroid along with local anaesthetic ) is injected at the nerve roots affected under X Ray guidance in operation theatre. This gives pain relief and decreases nerve swelling too. Patient can undergo effective physical rehabilitation and exercises after pain relief. Surgery like decompression of nerve roots is needed in less than 1% cases where there is weakness of leg muscles or loss of bladder , bowel control. You should follow the treatment plan given by your doctor after patient assessment.
