surgery for 37-year-old w/acl tear?

newbie here...

wanted to get advice about my knee with a ACL tear that i've had for 20 years...

i'm thinking of getting reconstructive surgery on my knee due to an ACL tear that's 20 years old... i had it scoped about 8 years ago to remove floating meniscus, but opted not to reconstruct...

i used to be very active (volleyball, basketball, snowboarding) even with this condition (with my cti2 knee brace on) up until 1 year ago, when my knee really started acting up... it would lock up occasionally, feel unstable, have sharp pain, etc...

have i done too much damage to it in the years i've played sports on it?

am i going to eventually get arthritis in this knee?

i'd like to continue to be active, but the problem is i may need reconstruction to do so...

thanks for any advice...

You really need qualified medical advice about your specific injury. Check with your doctor.
