yes i would get another opinion, i mean it couldnt hurt.....but dont feel too bad, i just tore my mcl, acl, pcl, and ruptured my patella tendon all in one wreck (dirtbike). i just hope that i will be able to walk again
I am an 18 year old female. I was in a car accident and had an MRI because of severe pain in my left knee. My doctor told me that the MRI showed that I have tore my left quadricep tendon. My doctor on the other hand told me that it will just heal itself and that I need to take physical therapy for a year. Personally I think she is full of it because I have studied this injury and realized it is quite serious. I am also in alot of pain and can barely walk. I'm only 18 and I used to play volleyball alot, now I cant do any of that. Does this injury heal on its own OR Do I need surgery? and should I go see an orthopedic surgeon for a second opinion?
