The results of the MRI are in:

  • A Baker’s cyst 3 x 2 x 4 cm
  • Old minor tear at the lateral meniscus
  • Grade I-II patellar chondrosis
  • Osteophytosis at the medial trochlea

If you’re interested you can Google what this all means. Basically I have fluid in my knee, and the cartilage behind my knee cap is damaged. There is also a small bone spur, a bone that the body makes to make up for a lack of cartilage. Unfortunately that is not a good plan and over time this can get very painful when that bone hits other bone.

I’m going to have physiotherapy and have to do a lot of stretching and strengthen exercises. They hurt.

And my doctor referred me to an orthopaedist. He’ll probably see me in 6 to 9 months.
