If you're interested in my kneecap dislocation story, you can find my other posts here.

Slowly I'm building back trust in my knee again.

The MRI results were perfect. No loose pieces of cartilage, no meniscus tears and no ACL damage. The ligaments holding my kneecap in place have all been stretched out, but that's to be expected after a full dislocation. Increasing my muscle strength will help compensate for this, along with wearing a brace during high impact activities. My orthopedic surgeon was happy with my recovery and I was discharged from his care.  

These really are the best results I could have hoped for. No surgery, no lengthy recovery, no further delay to my thesis, and no need for an expensive, customized knee brace. 

Things are looking up for the start of 2016!
