I had an MRI taken and it showed that i had torn my IT band off my knee and it is hanging on by few fibers. I have no pain, there has been some fluid on the lateral part of my knee for a little over a month. Can the IT band be surgically fixed or is it best to have it scoped and cleaned up. A little background, I am very close to completing my advanced Navy Seal training when this happened. so I am very active. please, I would appreciate any feedback, I want to be able to be 100 percent! please let me know what my options are. Thank you very much!!
