What is a displaced patella?
« on: June 10, 2007, 05:43:17 AM »
I recently ordered copies of my original medical records from the hospital where I was first treated.  I knew that I had a tibial plateau fracture & a fibula fracture.  The displaced patella was never mentioned, and as far as I know, never treated.  What is this & did it just fix itself?!
12/31/06 tibial plateau fracture (medial)
              fibula fracture
              patella fracture
              (no surgery, long, slow recovery)
   8/1/07  7 months, beginning FWB
   8/1/08  more physical therapy to develop
               calf & quads
   8/21/08 climbing stairs
