Im ok 8 weeks after second op this sunday,
Op went well k wires and tension band
walking with just a stick.carnt do a leg lift yet but just started to be able to twitch my knee cap.doing as much walking as i can to build up.gets very sore,just made it to 90 ROM which was hard to do,previous ajustments where very easy start pt in 2days.OS thinks full recovery in 5 not sure on that tho.i loose the brace in 11 days,and its a good thing two as its starting to fall apart.
havent been on in a while as had abit of a iffy moment where 3ichs of scar opened up,looked badley infected,but turned out to be stitches rejecting.and not puss which was a big relief

Strange thing iv noticed is stretch marks on my bad knee from swelling but also on  my good knee from overcompensation maybe?

Hope everyones recovery is going well
1/5/17 open fracture and torn patela tendon fixed with two screws
10/6/17 ROM 75 walking with one crutch
17/6/17 transfered,fracture had reopened
25/7/17 walking with stick
9/8/17 ROM 90
11/8/17 start PT
