I had a motorcycle accident 4 weeks ago and I was diagnosed with a sprained knee and given a plaster splint on the back of the leg.
After a check up three weeks later, they spotted a fractured patella (lateral fracture) that they missed the first time and put me in a leg cast. The inner left side of my knee still hurts which indicates possible damaged MCL ligament.
Should I have MRI now or after my patella heals? I feel like my treatment has been wrong from the beginning as they didn't even spot my fractured patella and treated me only with a flimsy splint. I was waiting for insurance to approve an MRI, but I'd pay cash now to have it done tomorrow if I thought it was necessary.
So, should I take the cast off now and get an MRI or wait until patella heals then get MRI? Would hate to have to get surgery for MCL after all the time waiting for patella to heal... Wish they could both be treated at the same time.
