MRI Results

Dr. Gibson was able to look at my images this morning and he could see all the swelling and said it looked like something was wrong with my ACL and with the medial side of my knee but he couldn't tell exactly what it was.  But then later in the afternoon he was able to pull the report from the physician website to see what the radiologist wrote.  The results?

1. There appears to be a rupture of the left knee ACL graft. An intact graft is not identified.
2. Tear of the posterior horn lateral meniscus.
3. Significant volume loss of the midbody and posterior horn of the medial meniscus.  Displaced meniscal fragment adjacent to the anterior horn of the medial meniscus is suspected.  There may be a bucket-handle component of the medial meniscus tear.
4. Large joint effusion.
5. Mild MCL sprain.

None of that sounds good to me.  Probably because none of that is good.  I'm curious what the surgeon will make of it all.  We'll find out on Thursday!
