I was walking upto 10km a day, and loving it.  I have done several half marathons and some in the first 10%.  Howver, that all changed when I was out walking and felt a dreadful pinging pain in the back of my knee.  After an MRI the results were as follows:

Peculiar lesion of the medial femoral condyle with the appearances of longstanding osteochondritis dissecans.  There is a small joint effusion.  There is a small osteochondral lesion of the lateral femeral condyle.

Likely dorsal root tear medial meniscus.  There is a peculiar osteochondral lesion medial femoral condyle which is likely longstanding.   This could be related to an old injury or possibly old osteochondritis dissecans.

Our Government Accident Compensation are disputing the claim saying that my injury is degenerative (I am only 45).  Do I need an operation to fix this or will time do it.  What are my options?

Thanks for all comments.
