Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Thanks for the answer! Just to confirm before I make an appointment with a different specialist/surgeon, please read the findings of my MRI scan which i got after the injury and confirm that you recommend I see a different surgeon. I would be grateful if you could briefly explain the sentence which i have highlighted in bold and underlined at the end of the report:
A full-thickness tear of the central proximal tendon of the left rectus femoris is noted with a gap of 2.5 cm between the torn ends. The surrounding muscle traversing the tear site. This therefore represents a grade 3 tear of the central tendon, but an overall grade 2 tear of the rectus femoris. A small amount of haemorrhage is noted at the tear site, however, no gross haematoma is identified.
Mild subchonondral oedema is seen in the pubic symphysis in keeping with mild osteitis pubis.
