    Why did you have the second mri do you have issues? If you are having problems maybe you need more fixed.  If no issues I wouldn’t jump In too quickly.

    You need an orthopedic surgeon to explain the MRI and explain the issues. I doubt if a to be here is really qualified to give you a full explanation as we aren't doctors and you could get some misinformation.

    I don't think anyone here is qualified to understand or advise you on what the MRI results are. You really need to consult an orthopaedic surgeon to get an answer. We have had the op been or are going thorough recovery but are not qualified to diagnose. We can try to advise but everyone is different. Please don't google the results, the only one to help you is an orthopaedic surgeon.

    HI Ernesto,

    as the others have said, you would be better off speaking to the surgeon.  As a former Plaster Technition, I can explain a little.  The results that you’ve shown us seem ok, no real problem.  No tears or breaks seen.  You do have tendinitis, which is the wear and tear damage to the tendon, thus causing the pain you’re in.  I’m supposing the first operation you had done was a arthroscopy, where they checked the damage, washed out the knee etc.  the tendon takes a long time to heal.  It affects sports people a lot but it does heal.....eventually.  You’ve had it a long time and it must feel awful but I’m not sure what they can do for tendinitis for immediate relief.

    this is just my opinion.  I’m no doctor or even a nurse so don’t take my word for it.  I don’t think it’s anything I’d worry about.  Hope this helps a little and good luck with everything.
