Unfortunately, I don't think anyone on here will be able to interpret your MRI images as it takes many years of specialist training.  Virtually everyone here is a patient, very few doctors.  Even if there were, they wouldn't ethically be able to give you a diagnosis in this way. 

What did you do to your knee and what symptoms do you have?  The knee is a very complex joint and different symptoms can mean very different things (or indeed that there is nothing that time won't heal)

You've posted in the ligaments section, does your doctor think you have damaged a ligament?  Which one?

When you have seen your doctor and have the report and treatment plan, come back with the findings if you have questions about what it all might mean.

Good luck :)

Thanks for your reply. I have this from the doctor who saw the mri http://www.mediafire.com/view/wg8n9b51kduvrv0/10881160_319104438283291_752451146_n.jpg but it is written in italian and I don't understand this. I \injured my knee 2 months before in a soccer match and yesterday I made the mri and took that reply from the doctor

You should get it translated - put in Google translate at least

I think from what little Italian I have you've partially torn (possibly) your anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).  Have a look in the primers in the information hub to understand what this may mean

Sounds like everything else is intact, except you have swelling in the knee (but you probably knew that)

When do you see the orthopaedic specialist to discuss the results and treatment?  You need to talk to the doctor, not just have the report, you need to understand what it means in your own case.  You'll need to find a doctor who speaks English if you are in Italy and don't speak Italian

They told me I have torn partially the acl. If I need to have surgery, can I wait 2 years or should I have surgery immediately (I can walk for now no prpoblem not playing for 2 years because need to earn money for the surgery almost 10 k $)

Have a read through this section

 http://www.kneeguru.co.uk/KNEEnotes/primers/cruciate-ligament-primer

Whether you can wait for surgery or not will depend on you, your symptoms (especially stability of the knee), whether you want to play sport, your age, all sorts

Best talk to your doctor, you might find some focused physiotherapy is a good idea

Does Italy not have public health care?
