Hi, any help or information would be very much appreciated!
2 and a half weeks ago i was playing football when a bad challenge came in on my knee. It swelled up straight away so I went to A&E, had an X-Ray when they realised I had had internal bleeding in my knee (which i had to have 60ml of blood drained). They then told me this was due to an ACL Tear.
4 days later I had an appointment with an Orphopedic Surgeon who then said I'll need an MRI scan to see how bad the tear is, and if there's any damage to my cartilage.
So i was just wondering how long you have to wait for an MRI scan...because I haven't really been told much so I've just been looking on the internet for answers.
I mean, do you have to wait until the swelling goes down completely??? Or is it just when they can fit you in for an MRI???
I'm just a bit stumped because I don't know what's happening or how bad my injury is. However, I am going to my see my GP tomorrow but would also like to hear off anyone who's torn their ACL before and can help answer my questions...or give me some advice as you would have already been through the same experience. Thanks guys.
