Hi AFU ! From your MRI scan it seems that there are few multiple problems involved with your knee joint. This needs an expert opinion of an Orthopedic surgeon and you should go for one at the earliest to avoid any further complication of the knee joint, which may create problem in your job as a chef where you have to stand for long hours. Wishing you an early recovery.
