Hi,

You may be suffering from a fracture in the medial femoral condyle of the knee and an effusion in the knee along with a history of past surgery for a meniscus tear.

Please mention your symptoms and then it can be correlated clinically. Are you a postoperative case or history of trauma of the knee or history of repeated knee joint injection for osteoarthritis, etc.?

Please consult your doctor, he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,

sI have recently done an MRI of my L knee because I developed atraumatic medial knee pain. The MRI shows an oblique insufficiency fracture of the medial femoral condyle with intense local bone oedema. There was no focal chondral defect at the fracture site. There were mild osteodegenerative changes in the medial compartment. There is also an irregular degenerative flap tear of the body and posterior horn of the medial meniscus. I am on anti-inflamatories, rest and am wearing a knee brace. I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT TO SEE MY KNEE ORTHOPOPAEDIC SUGEON ON MONDAY. Must I do anything else and must I be completely free of weight bearing ?
