Consistent knee pain. X-ray showed chondromalacia. MRI shows stress fractures. Knee feeling cold. Want insight

My is 15 & has played club soccer for 10 years now. last year she noticed after games that her knees were achy. That was pretty consistant for a few months. Early Spring this year they started hurting before & after games. This past summer, they hurt before, during & after games. Early fall after a busy practice week, she had two league games back to back, where she played 95% of both games. Upon finishing, she couldn t walk to the car. Her pain has been consistent since. She saw an orthopedist, whom after an xray told her she has Chondromalacia. She started PT & rested for 4 weeks. At 4 weeks, her pain was still unbearable, so we demanded an MRI . While waiting for the results, she tried out for her High Schools Soccer team, two days in a row, for a total of 4 hours. Her pain was a 11+. The results showed she had approx. 12 stress fractures on both her femur & tibia where they meet at her patella . She was put on crutches. After 2 days her other knee was equally in pain as the on that was tested, she s in a wheelchair. She has been non weightbearing for 3 weeks now & her pain seems to be getting worse. Now she s complaining of her knee feeling, freezing cold & as if there is water running over it ? Her orthopedist, mentioned there was a possibility that she had a torn meniscus , but overlooked it because of her age & the presence of a growth plate there? Please give me any insight.....Her pain is unbearable, it keeps her from sleeping & she literally is doing nothing.
