Surgery? Degeneration posterior horn of meniscus, tendinosis/partial thickness tearing of patellar tendon at interpolar patella,  subcutaneous edema

When nonop tx fails: Surgery is not usually the first line of treatment for chronic injuries such as you described: degenerative (chronic) PHMMT, and patellar tendinosis (vs partial inferio pole tear). Nonoperative management: physical therapy, stretching program, NSAIDs, rest, ice, may all help considerably. Arthroscopy to debride a degenerative meniscal tear due to persistent mechanical symptoms may be needed later. ...Read more

I got an MRI after cutting the top part of my thumb. The report said that the extensor tendon was not visualized. Y would that be? Referred to surgeon

Varied: There are a number of possibilities. To be honest, after such an injury, a good exam is much more useful than an mri. The two main reasons it would not be seen is if it was cut and retracted into your hand, or of there was enough soft tissue injury and swelling that it was there but could not be visualized. Again, the results of an exam would tell me more than an mri. Thanks. ...Read more

Is peroneal tendon subluxation bad? What can happen from being untreated?  I don't wanna end my tennis season early! Can it get worse?

Time to stop tennis: I assume from the diagnosis you have seen an ortho or podiatrist. If you continue to play, you could develop a trar of the peroneal tendon or avukse the tendon from the bone. Better to miss playing time, than risk surgery that will effect your ability to work. ...Read more
