Title: Ruptured quadricep tendon diadnosed 11 months later
Post by: MENI on September 04, 2008, 09:54:42 AM
 I need advice urgently ,my dad 66yrs of age and diabetic fell in october last year 2007 , and could hardly work for a while , the right leg was also swollen , now the swelling has gone done but no strenght to use his right leg. he has just been diagnosed to have a ruptured quadricep tendon , the problem is we are skeptical about having surgery to correct the problem since the quad muscle has retracted . pls advice is urgently needed.

Thanks all
