MRI was completed yesterday and it revealed the following things:
1) I suck at life
2) I have a partial sprain of the MCL
3) My long battle with a crunchy kneecap is confirmed: I do have chondromalacia!
4) There is some fraying of the posterior horn of my medial meniscus
5) My ACL surgery is kind of a giant ho bag since all the metallic instruments and hardware used obscured any kind of quality imaging. Slut. Dirty dirty ACL slut nugget.
So what does this all mean?
I was instructed that this does not mean surgery. I need to let the sprain heal. And that means continuing to baby the knee. I am going to try out some Flector patches to hopefully calm the inflammation down. And basically, after that, it is the whole “wait and see” game. So unfortunately, that means Mr. Lumpy…who is apparently Mr. Lumpy the bastard child of Ms. MCL…is here to stay for the time being.
