New here-- need general help with what my MRI means
« on: August 27, 2010, 03:19:00 PM »
Hello everyone,

i have had 5 total knee surgeries over the last 15 years. I have a follow up with my knee doctor in a few weeks since he is on vacation but my MRI populated on my thedacare website and I was wondering if anyone can help me with figuring out what this means. Is another surgery liikely? I dont' expect professional advice or anything just anyones opinion who has experienced this. Thank you so much!!!
