My Options after review of the MRI findings...

1.  Arthroscopic surgery
2.  A slighting more extensive arthroscopic surgery

I actually felt pretty sure that I wouldn't really need surgery...I must have been in denial.  This pretty much puts me out of running until Winter...which means next year.  I will want to take it slow so that I actually have the chance the run again and not hurt it.  I have not yet met made the appointment for surgery. but it will most likely be in July.

The 2nd option would entail crutches and then a big straight knee brace for about 12 weeks.  I should be able to drive myself, but going up and down stairs will be difficult at best....

The cool thing is that they gave me a CD with my MRI images!!!
