I was at the doctors' office this afternoon and the results from the MRI are in. I have to get knee surgery, most likely next week. According to my test, I snapped the anterior (front) tendon exactly as I suspected I had, but that isn't all. I apparently broke the ring of cartilage that cushions the knee joint as well. The doctor says it looks horrible and that it will need to be repaired as soon as possible to avoid permanent problems, and he set an appointment up with a surgeon and I go to see him on Tuesday afternoon. He will give me a pre operative examination and let me know exactly when the surgery will be done. Unfortunately, it won't be one of those easy laproscopic surgeries where they just make a couple small cuts to work through. I have to get the whole thing laid wide open and get the old fashioned, dozens of stitches kind of operation. I guess it's good that at least I finally know for sure what is going to have to be done. Wish me luck!
