Orthopaedics consultant video call
Cartilage is worn away on lateral side of patello-femural joint
Damage to both patella and femur as a result - he said "a reaction" - best explanation I could get out of him was the bone was bruised but I think there's more to it than that.
Some of the patella bone structure has broken away and is floating loose to one side, but doesn't seem to be causing me any problems.
Excess synovial fluid, which will be helped by the steroid injection I had on Friday
The radiology report mentioned a tear in the meniscus, but the orthopaediologist couldn't see it so didn't think it was worth worrying about.
No reason to operate at the moment. (Not that there's much they could do anyway)
No running for the foreseeable future (probably never)
Cycling, walking, X-trainer all OK.
Use poles for downhill hill-walking
Avoid all activities that involve weight-bearing where the knee is bent at >135 degree angle
