Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I am sorry to hear about this
How bad is your pain?
10 being the worst im a 7
this injury happen on 4/1/13
Is there still swelling?
Okay, this will likely heal with time, it should not require surgery, but it may take 8-12 weeks to heal
REALLY ? It sounds terrible
It actually does not sound terrible, I work in orthopedic surgery and this MRI does not indicate irreversible damage
Thats wonderful when i seen complex tear i nearly went through the roof,and my appt back to DR. is in 7 days
whats the difference in complex and partial which is worst ?
A complex tear is worse
ok cause i had a partial in my opposit knee and the pain was no where as bad as this and i had surgey
That makes sense
Ok Thanks a lot i havent slept more then 3 hrs since i fell the pain is excrutiating at night more so then in the day do you know why that is ?
Are you there?
The large joint effusion may be causing pressure and pain in your knee joint, you may need to ask your orthopedic surgeon to drain the knee joint with a syringe, it will likely help and takes about 3 minutes at most in the office
SOUNDS LIKE MORE PAIN !!!!
DOES THAT HURT ?
No, it does not hurt
PHEW OK , GUESS I WILL BE FINE TILL THE 7TH THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOU TIME
You're very welcome
I am happy I could help
PLEASE HAVE A GOOD NIGHT
