Any positvie outcome with patella tendon surgery?
« on: August 09, 2008, 08:54:31 PM »
Hi everyone
It's beginning to appear that I'm going to have surgery to repair a partial patella tendon tear.  The OS also suspects and small tear in the meniscus.  My original injury date was May 24.  I've since changed doctors because I wasn't getting straight answers from the 1st one.  The new MD wants be to have PT for a month and see hem on Sep 3.  A decision will be made then.  There is a crack in the patella but he feels it's an old injury.  I would like to hear from someone who's had a patella repair.  I know recovery can be slow.  I just would like to know if I can have a normal quality of life.  I would just like to drive again so I can return to work and be independent again.  Please help.i
