Medical and Physical Therapy questions A place to talk about current and or past injuries and possibly how to deal with those injuries. Any advice should not be considered as medical advice, but rather from one person to another as you might ask a friend.

Unhappy Update: MRI Results for left knee injury

Good: no tear in ACL

Bad: the ACL reconstruction I had took a beating. It was stretched whether it be from the accident or exercise or wear&tear. The surgical staples are all stretched and out of line. But, I can live with that.

The medial meniscus has a tiny tear and a little flip in it.

There is a ton of arthritis.

SO....

I can go in and get it scoped while recovering from the c spine surgery. This doesn't sound like a bad option. If they could fit me in before the end of the year. If they can do it before January, I would be thrilled because of my out of pocket is only going to be around $300 because of everything I've met so far. If they can't, the billing cycle starts all over and I won't be able to pay for it.

Brings me to: get it done so I will have a fresh knee, popping free? Or live with the crunch and grind until those staples completely pop and I need a total reconstruction.

What say you??

Allowing it to get worse before you repair it will certainly create a hell of a lot more rehab and recovery time. Based on what you said, it sounds like having it scoped and fixed now would be the better option.

agree... get it done and push for the pre-january date...claim a hardship as your already off work for the neck and don't wish to extend into a second rehab...
