Avatar m tn Hi, I just received the MRI results for my right knee. It shows to have: "Myxoid degeneration of medial meniscus posterior horn with knee joint effusion and suspected partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament for which clinical correlation is adviced". I get only right knee MRI due to its cost, but I'm suffering of similar pain on both knees. What does this mean? Is there any treatment I can do at home to relief the pain? Thanks!
Avatar n tn 1st time was in 1994, I tore them in my left knee, now I am 33 and tore them in my right knee. I had one month of PT prior to my surgery where I got my range of motion back and strengthened leg muscles. I selected the cadaver ligament over the other two options, esp since in 94 I had my patella tendon used and it has never been the same since. Numb, freaks me out to shave, NO ONE can go near it, hurts badly if i ever hit it on anything. Again.. this is 15 years later.
Avatar f tn Can anyone tell me the average amount of having a normal vaginal delivery in a hospital?
Avatar n tn s a big new hospital in town that charges $80 for the same surgery. Most of the time no pain meds are needed after a neuter, so that also keeps the cost of the surgery down. Keep in mind that most vets will not operate on an animal that has not received its rabies vaccinations, so if your pets have not had them, add on the cost of rabies vaccinations. As Savas said, wherever you go, make sure the vet is qualified.
