MRI showing tibial bone contusion. History of knee surgeries. Will this be cured completely?

After years of knee issues and 6 previous surgeries, I have been diagnosed with tibial bone contusion by MRI . My doctor has ordered protected weight bearing with a crutch and ordered an unloader brace. There was no trama or injury that occured. Seeing as arthritic changes had already been observed in this knee years ago, what are the chances that this will heal given enough rest? What are the chances that this will not occur again once I resume weight bearing?

Thanks for writing to us.
The tibial bone contusion often heals on conservative treatment. In case there is a persistent inflammation and degenerative changes, the recurrence can happen. You need to be vigilant about the treatment you are getting and the recovery.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
