PCL Tear

I had a recent motorcycle mishap. I broke both the tibia and the fibula (2 places) Lucky for me I just found out today (2 weeks later) that the fibula is stable and I will not need a plate. However, I was informed by my ortho that he was referring me for an MRI because he felt that I probably tore my PCL. All the web information I can find is all over the map whether this injury requires surgical repair or not. However, I do like to get my Cardio exercise and Im concerned about my future with the treadmill if I do nothing. My orthopedic said because Im young (33) that he would probably recommend repair...help?

Thank you!!!
