Title: My MRI results
Post by: Mommy Maria on April 15, 2005, 09:06:18 PM
I injured both knees last month.  Since I am waiting to see my surgeon, I was wondering if anyone could help me interpret my MRI results for my left knee (it's the worst).  The report reads as follows:

"Traumatic joint effusion.  A near complete acute tear of the anterior cruciate ligament.  Grade 2 sprain of the medial collateral ligament.  Extensive bone marrow contusion."

Can anyone tell me how bad this is?  Thanks, Maria.
