Got results back from MRI yesterday and the doc gave me some good news and some bad news.

Good News: No torn meniscus and no broken bone!!!

Bad News: a "sizeable" piece of cartilage is missing from my knee, I'm going to have to have microfracture surgery (from what I understand: arthroscopic surgery to put four small holes in my bone, this will cause a "good" blood clot to form, and the hope is that it will turn into new cartilage), can't put any weight on my leg for 6 weeks after surgery (but will be exercising it 2 days after surgery), can't start running again until 3 months after that, and then I can try playing tennis 2 more months after that.

Thanks for everyone's input.
