Patellar Tendon Rupture
« on: April 25, 2005, 02:43:02 AM »
Hi , I'm new to the board. I was playing softball yesterday and turn around first base when I heard a snap and felt a tear. After some X-rays the doctor said I ruptured my patellar tendon. It is the lower tendon NOT the quad tendon. I am going to see the Ortho guy tomorrow I am hoping someone can tell me what to expect as far as surgery , post op, rehab, etc.... I am a firefighter so I am hoping to not be out of work forever. Any info anyone has would be a big help. Thanks.
