Are MRI interpretations enough to decide the need for a surgery?

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have attached my 18-year-old son’s MRI report here. I got different opinions from doctors. Is it necessary for surgery? Please give me advice on what to do.

Please help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and understand your concern.

Yes, surgery is necessary as the patient is young, and ligaments are necessary for knee stability. So, arthroscopic surgery is required. You need to take the following tablets:

1. Tablet Ibuprofen 400 mg twice in the morning and night for ten days after food. 2. Tablet Rabeprazole 20 mg once in the morning for ten days before food.

3. Tablet Shelcal (calcium) 500 mg once in the morning for 30 days before food.

4. Tablet Vitamin D (60k) once daily for ten days, then once a month for 11 months.

Take these tablets only if you are not allergic to them. Do not take these tablets if you have a known case of bronchial asthma. Follow up immediately in case of any untoward reactions. Activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily. Activities like squatting, kneeling, twisting and pivoting, jogging, aerobics, dancing, and playing sports should be avoided until knee pain and swelling resolve. You should wear a hinged knee brace for support to the knee joint. Wear it all day, and you can remove it at night. Apply ice packs twice daily for 15 minutes each.

I hope this answers your questions.
