ACL tear and shattered Patella :( Anyone else?
« on: July 23, 2007, 09:57:56 PM »
Hi,

I'm new here, and I've never really actively participated in online communities, but my situation is quite bad and have really come here to see if anyone else has had the same unfortunate injuries as me (plus didnt know quite where to post, in the ACL section or the kneecap sections)

I'm currently 6 weeks, post ACL repair op, but last week I managed to snap my knee cap in two after a simple slip :(.  I'm now 5 days post patella surgey.  Right now I'm really scared and generally depressed as I do not know what my knee will be like after/if i recover (fully).  Plus I had recently started my new full time job since graduating and so my worries go on.  Anyway the reason I've decided to post on the forum is in the hope that someone might have gone through the same thing and could give some advice.

Anyway on a slighty happier note, I am really excited that I found this site and hope I can help as well as recieve help particularly in our messed-up knee phase of our lives.
