I had the same MRI concerns that you have. Numerous nurses, surgical assistants, and, importantly, two surgeons all had the same answer — the swelling must be gone and the bones must be properly aligned before further surgery can be done on soft-tissue. It is a non-issue until they get the rest of it right.
Again, ask to see your images and have someone show you the damage. Ask about your CARTILAGE because that is what keeps your bones moving smoothly at the knee. Your “gut” reaction may be due to not having enough information to feel comfortable about your treatment. You will have better healing if you understand and are confident in the decisions your medical providers are making.
Keep working to get the answers you need.
