    A week to get MRI results? That's insane. You should have them in a day or two. Try calling the place that did your MRI on Monday or Tuesday and see if they have results.

    I've noticed that if I leave my knee in a partially flexed position (like sitting) it stiffens up. It's much better if I remember to move it every 30 minutes or so.

    i hear you. the worst part about waiting for MRI results is that the tech who ran the machine could tell you what you need to know right away, but due to liability issues, he won't, and you will wait for a radiologist to look. i know this because i used to work in an MRI lab that was doing medical research. it was good for me, cause i could get a free MRI, and the techs would tell me what was up, and if they weren't sure, i worked with several radiologists as well, but it really showed me how wrong our system is.

    sucks about the painkillers. 3 weeks into my separated shoulder i am down to one pill a day and tomorrow i am stopping them all together. still hurts a lot, but i can handle it and like the reminder that i am still hurt.

    I deal with the pain until I'm home. But by then I get the sharp pains pretty frequently. My mom is an MRI tech in another state I am sending her a copy so I can't get a free second opinion. If they are going to jerk me around I am going to get other opinions. He'll they could have just given me the MRI. I know how to read them (thank you mom!) at least I will know if they are lying to me

    FACK!

    Dojo doctor is very confident that I have a torn ACL. Son of a bitch. She says if I want to continue with karate, I'll probably need surgery. Getting an MRI to be certain of course, but she said "yeah your knee isn't supposed to move like that, just so you know."

    She says with surgery my chances of going on to full contact fighting are very good, however.

    Still man, ****. ACL. D:

    Congratulations, you're fucked for at least six months. But then you'll be fine. It's such a common injury doctors are good at fixing it. Do the PT afterwards. It will suck, but you have to do it.

    I go to the doctor tomorrow with my slides, but I looked up MRI slides of healthy ACLs and torn ACLs. A healthy ACL will be a solid black line:



    A torn ACL will either look like this:



    Or like this:



    There isn't a black line present at all on all of my slides that show my ACL. I'm pretty sure that fucker's torn. :( I'll know for sure when I see the doctor. I haven't had years of training on how to read MRI slides, but my guesses have always been right before.

    There are many threads on the subject of ACL tears, but this one has some stuff with regard to getting back in the game:

    I can personally say recovering from a full MCL tear sucks much worse, so count your blessings with the ACL.
