edit: we can be PCL buddies!
Were you wearing any shin guards when these events happened?
My Orthopedic doctor said that I probably would not need to have surgery to mantain my normal activities. I am hoping that turns out to be the case.

When I fell the impact hurt like hell, but after that I was able to ride. Figuring I should knock off for the evening I went inside after proving to myself that I still had "it". 20 minutes later, when I was going down some stairs I turned on the bad leg, heard a pop, and was sent to the floor in pain.

After three weeks of stretching, icing, hundreds of Ibprofan, and tens pain pills, I am walking normally and starting to test running.
I haven't tried the unicycle yet, I don't want to try landing until I feel more confident on this less than perfect knee.

I am getting impatient and fat.

Let me know how your knee heals. I am defenately courious.
