MRI Results - a whole shopping list of knee issues.
Finally heard the results of my MRI this morning (5 weeks after injury). All I can say is I did a number on my knee, thats for sure:
Complete ACL tear.
Complex Radial Tear of lateral Meniscus.
And finally, what my ortho described as the most extensive bone bruising he has ever seen on a tibia (in the MRI, the good bones were black while the whole end of the tibia was light grey). Basically, he thinks the force of the crash was so much that I came very close to shattering my lower leg!
After all that however, the fix is still the same ACL repair with the added task of cutting out some of the torn meniscus while he's in there (its not a fixable tear). All the other stuff will hear itself.
Thems the breaks I guess (or tears in this case)."Great barbecue makes you want to slap your granny up the side of her head." - Southern Saying

Damn! Thank goodness it's only an ACL - when's the surgery?

Yikes, Lego!!! Good luck with the surgery. Keep us posted."I knew in an instant that the three dollars I had spent on wine would not go to waste."

oooh boy Lego. You should just ask them if they can rebuild your knee with actual Lego's. Once you explain that you are in fact, LegoSkier, I'm sure they'll understand.
oh and to really be in this club...you have to change your "location" to something gimpy-cool like: "rehab", "PT", or "death bed". That goes for you too Kellie.Waste your time, read my crap, at:

Damn, when you do it you do it right.... errr wrong.....bad....
Sorry to hear about the shopping list but don't worry too much. Just as you said, the repair is the same as anyother ACL recon. Good luck and heal up fast.

ugh, that is quite a list. I had acl reconstruction a week ago...without an MRI. So i was suprised to find out that my medial and lateral menisci were hosed, only the lateral was repairable.
Good luck legodude, i found you a legonurse...
