As if having my basement flood to start the month wasn't enough, now this: (attached)
I find out tomorrow what I'm in for when I meet with the surgeon.

Knee?
I was x-rayed bone on bone on my right new 5 years ago. Bothersome but still going

Best Wishes

What exactly did they say the xray shows and what are your symptoms?

Thanks guys,
It's two of about 150 MRI images of my left knee.
Went up a step, heard/felt a loud POP, nearly fell on my face. Stabbing/tearing pain throughout the knee, up the back of my thigh up into my glute, and down the front of my calf mid-way to my ankle. Can't bear weight on the left leg unless the knee is locked totally straight. Knee is very unstable side-to-side.

ER took xrays which showed two bone fragments floating around, but wouldn't do an MRI and referred me to follow up with an Orthopedic the next day.

I see the surgeon for the full reading and treatment plan tomorrow afternoon, but initial report from Radiology suspects torn patellar tendon, MCL, PCL and lateral complex tears. Likely cartilage damage and severely damaged meniscus (medial, lateral, and root tears.)

Combined with the fact that my knees are both 17degrees misaligned with my ankles (tibial torsion), if I were older, I think the doc would push for a replacement, but since I'm mid-40's, it looks like attempts to repair are the best option, possibly including a synthetic meniscus...

I'll update after the appointment... I'm just dejected at the probability of being sidelined for 2-3 months. Was slinging arrows and bolts in the yard a few hours before the injury and was already amped up for September.

YEah, that is more than I have going on. I had ortho surgery to clean up some tears a few years ago. Was not a big deal and was on the roof shoveling snow off it 2 days later. Big snow storm hit the afternoon after my surgery.

Good luck

Hang in there guy. They can do an awful lot to help you get back on your feet and functional again. It will all work out, you're still young.

Remember.... they're full time deer......we're part time hunters!
