I am new to this forum and the reason why I started this topic is because I have badly sprained my knee again. This time I've made MRI and 2 days ago I've got results. What I would like to ask for is to take a look at this results and tell what’s going on there, I don’t trust doctors here…

Let me first bring you closer the history of my right knee.
I am 28 years old, first sprain took place in 2001
during football game without any warm up, it was maybe 5th
minute of the game. I was trying to turn back with a ball and it simply happen. Pain was tremendous, it took me 3 minutes to say anything. I didn’t get any medical help and after 1 hour of rest I limped towards home. After few weeks I did it again and again it started worrying me so I went to a doctor. He wasn’t any specialist he probably knew what was going on but what he did was advice not to overuse knee and additionally he gave me dismissal from physical exercises in school.
Between 2001 and 2007 I was almost completely able to do everything and occasionally had minor sprains without knee being blocked (I had just this typical “click” in my knee from time to time, but without any pain). In 2007 I sprained it seriously, couldn’t move at all.
In hospital they made x-ray to check if nothing was broken and put my leg for 14 days in a cast. After that time muscles decreased, liquid above knee appeared and it was still blocked. I walked 6 with crutches, because it took so much time to have a surgery. Before my surgery I could walk without them but my right knee had only 30 degree operational range. I forgot to mention that 1 month after injury doc send me on rehabilitation which included exercises with physiotherapist when she was trying to bend my knee using force… After that I went to other doc, told him about that and he was shocked, “we” decided not to continue rehab before operation. After operation in 2007 I got extract from hospital where was written that they removed remains of ACL and two third (2/3) of meniscus medialis.
After few months knee was fine, I tried not to overuse it and do things which don’t provide a lot of risk (swimming, cycling, light gym exercises). And now in 2012, in the middle of June I fall of bike, and sprained it again. This time I was sure that sth new has happened because I felt pain on right side of knee and some at rear side). I have also feeling that some new “clicks” appeared. Liquid disappeared after 10 days but some of it is still there (I feel it), knew kind of feelings appeared in quadriceps femoris muscle, some kind of itching pain under skin hard to define but it did not disappeared. Some kind of stabbing in knee and general feeling that knee is less reliable.
I need to know what kind of surgery do I need, is it possible to improve my knee by meniscus and ligament implants. What things should I avoid and so on.
Thank you all in advance
