    Had an MRI last week
    Had the results today

    conclusion taken straight from the paperwork

    ACL tear
    Medial meniscus tear
    Old MCL sprain
    Joint effusion


    Do I just shoot myself in the head or what?

    anyone had the surgerys or know anyone who has, tell me your horror story’s or just tell me I’m a queer and to rub some dirt on it

    Meeting with the doctor again to discuss options but I’m debating doing literally nothing because I fucking hate hospitals and I also hate being off work a month

    Don't write him off too soon. He could Magic it.

    My kneecap floats to the side sometimes.
    Not painful, but such a weird, uncomfortable feeling.

    15 years ago i broke my everything..

    Acl, mcl, meniscus.. i was skiing on snow blades.. ie usually skis have this automatic release.. snow blades did not..

    The blade got stuck in ice/roots at maybe 30mph and i folded like a fucking knife.. broke my right knee in spectacular fashion and kept on rolling.. with nothing holding my knee in place and the added weight of the ski boot i did some more damage..

    alcoholic ski doctor told me he'd tape it up and i was good to go.. swelled for 24 hours until size of a small melon..

    They literally had to siphon parts out of my knee..

    My surgery was very successful.. i'm far from an athlete but lifting, kb, boxing, ball sports etc is no problem at all..

    That said i spent a lot of time on crutches, rehab etc.. only side effects are some scarring from the operation, a part of my lower leg that is numb from nerv damage and the knowledge that i got that ginger gene that makes me very hard to sedate..

    Good luck..

    Oh yeah.. i did rub a lot of dirt on it..

    With the surgeries and proper rehab, you'll be fine in about 8 months or so.

    Never been a better time to have a knee injury, thanks to recent breakthroughs in medical science.

    Just fly down to South America, or Germany, & get yourself some cutting-edge stem cell treatments, & you should be all set in a jiffy.

    You’re welcome

    If you do your research and aggressively rehab it, you should be good to go sooner than you think

    Why did you have an MRI? Doctors can diagnose that shit just by wiggling it around these days.

    Don’t know really, I wanted an x Ray because a few people had been in my ear saying it could be arthritis and he gave me the ‘wiggle’ and said we will do an MRI instead

    I've heard it can be a problem forever if your surgeon sucks, or based on some other random reason people aren't sure of.

    I tore my right knee up while training for a kickboxing bout & had surgery to repair the damage. It wasn't super successful as I blew it out while running a few years later & I had to have it reconstructed. They had to put it back with titanium screws & now it's stiff & hurts like a bastard quite often. But I'm used to it.

    I have all those injuries in one of my knees minus the joint effusion. This was a quite a while ago when surgery wasn't as good. Doc gave me a couple choices, do the surgery and my knee would be almost good as new, BUT, there was a very good chance that I'd need another surgery to replace everything by the time I was 50-60. Or just let it heal as best as it can and then rehab & physio, I'll never have full stability in my knee but it'll be good enough to do almost all the stuff I want to do, and I won't need my knee opened up again.

    I chose to skip the surgery. I can't wrestle or play contact sports like football which require cutbacks and sudden direction changes, but I can still kickbox and do Muay Thai just fine. My kicks on one side aren't as solid since the support leg isn't as stable, but other than that everything's fine. There's no pain, I have full range of movement, I can still play hockey, soccer, and basketball on a recreational level, running is fine as long as I pay attention to my stride mechanics, and pretty much everything is decent. I just can't jump as high, sprint as fast, or make hard cuts while running.

    I blew out my acl in 2014 skateboarding. Had no insurance at the time so I just hoped for the best. 2 years later I moved out of state and got on Medicaid until I found a job with a health plan.

    Had no acl at that point, got a hamstring graft surgery. 6 months of physical therapy, was skating again after 9 months. Still gets sore once in awhile, but otherwise good

    I've had both knees replaced. Best thing I ever did. Just find a good surgeon.
