ligament wear

hi, I damaged my knee twenty years ago and tore my ligaments, lately my knee as been giving out on me I plan on joining a health plan but there is a five year exclusion clause for preexisting conditions.  My question is will the medical tests and surgeon be able to tell if it is an old or recent injury by the wear and tear of the ligaments

Thanks

Hi there!

Yes, old and new injuries can be differentiated/ identified on detailed radiographs.
Hope the information is helpful.

Take care!
