Update: My second MRI is in and yes there is something funky with my lateral miniscus. Not very much according to my doc but still there is. He showed me the images and indeed there is not much can be drawn from them with exeption for a small area that isn't supposed to look the way it is.
He put it quite clearly, it is really not something definitive, if we go in (by pulling and probing the miniscus) we may not find much at all, there is that chance. The symptoms and somewhat the MRI look like there is a tear, but it is difficult to say what type. If it is torn in certain way it could be either cut-ff (something I said no to), or trimmed, or stitched back togheter. I have the surgery scheduled on June 13, pending my insurance approval, and am hoping that whatever the case is, it won't need to be cut-off.
It was pretty much my decission to do the surgery, as he said that there is a chance it would heal, but it's been close to 1.5 years now that I've been feeling discomfort with that knee and which flared up after the PIG, so I said I would rather have it done than hope that it "may" heal.
