On Monday the 9th of July 2018, on a normal day, for work Khadejah’s whole life changed in a split second when she suffered a dislocation in her right knee. The following days khadejah was not able to walk, alongside facing severe pain and swelling to the knee. With a trip to the clinic, various x-rays and MRI scans showed that her bone rested narrow, traces of fluid, and a Horizontal tear of the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus. Which is the cartilage between the knee joints. Trying to cover other medical bills, Khadejah had to work with the use of a knee brace and crutches, but sadly over the years condition worsened, resulting in her losing her job. 

The new result shows that not only does she have a meniscus tear, but also sustains damage to her Patellofemoral ligament. Which is the muscle that holds her knee cap in place. With this, the knee cap rest on the side of the knee which leads to Arthritis of the knee cap and complete separation of the ligament holding the knee cap. The diagnosis was Patellar Subluxation. Pain management has become difficult due to her chronic urticaria she is unable to consume most anti-inflammatory medication.
