You have a torn menicus, a bone bruise on the back of the outside of your femoral chondyle (that is where your thigh bone ends in a ball shape) And bursitus.  What is he planning to do? Just trim your meniscus?

He wants to arthoscopy and not sure what he will have to do until he is in there. Will these heal on there own is happend Jan 4 so it has been a month and seems to be worse.  I am getting burning sensatatin and if I sit ton long with the chair hitting the back of my knee it goes numb.  Its also sarting to hurt more uo the thigh.

as far as i know, the meniscus will not heal on its own, it doesnt have its own blood supply. I would ask what he plans to do before i let him operate.

On my xray report it said the following:  What does this mean?
A small lucken is seen int he arior aspect of the patella.  This does not appear to represent a fracture.

Hey simone are you sure it didn't say lucent? If that is what it says, it would probably be a defect in the anterior aspect of the patella, I'm guessing which anterior is the front, and according to the radiologist it doesn't look like a fracture. Good Luck.
