My requirement is that I want to walk normal and do cycling and running, I can't refrain and limit myself. Want to feel like a normal person please advice to achieve those surgery is really necessary? I'm ready to undergo surgery if it's really necessary. Please advice and guide me.

First thing is the mri scan is done tooo early as the mri is still showing bone edema..you need to allow the lcl ligament and the bone contusions to heal. Once the swelling is reduced..you need to get assessed for instability..only then surgery is required is to be decided
