I somehow injured my knee in November of 2012 and finally went to the Drs. when it became clear it was not going to heal.
Yesterday I got the results of the MRI online, but haven't met with a Dr. to discuss yet other than Dr. Google who has me terrified.
This was the result:
Tears of the anterior and posterior horns of the medial meniscus
of the left knee.
Peri-meniscal cyst adjacent to the lateral meniscus therefore a
occult lateral meniscal tear cannot be excluded.
Patellar and medial femoral chondromalacia
Does anyone know what the treatment is? I'm assuming surgery will be required, but what is the prognosis generally speaking? Is there a period where you aren't allowed to bear weight on the repaired knee? Can this generally be fixed?
I am so discouraged since I've been in constant pain for so long that it feels like I'm never going to be better. I'm afraid this is just the start of never being pain free with my knees.
I've got two young children, one with special needs that can't be left with anyone so the thought of being on crutches for a month is freaking me out.
Can anyone share their experiences? Thanks, everyone.
