I ruptured my quadriceps tendon 8 weeks ago. Had the op within a day and tendon now secured by stitches.
Released from hospital on day 4 after weekend with little or no advice from medics. First 2 weeks in back cast
followed by 3 weeks in full cast. now fitted with knee brace and doing the exercises directed by PT. All appears
to be going well and can get about 85 deg bend on knee after about 10 mins work though get pulling pains at that
stage. Using 1

Hi, I am at the start of week 3 after a right quadriceps tendon rupture. I was straight into a knee brace as I am allergic to plaster. I was shocked to see the withered muscle and swollen knee after attempting a bath . I couldn't mentally deal with it got scared and put the brace back on. I am becoming really frustrated and depressed with the whole situation. I feel guilty about work and just want to get back to normal again. Do you have any advice for me please?
