Hi all,

I was under one specialist for my knee until he discovered my trochlear dysplasia last month. Now I've been referred to a new guy at a different hospital.

I had x-rays back in December and an MRI in early March, do you think I will need more? The letter says to expect an xray but I'm wondering if I will need another MRI as I'm really not a fan of those.

What do you think?

p.s, I wish I could start a diary on here but I don't think there are any for pre surgery.
