Hi Garry - yes it does get better.  Check out the section The Specicalist's Office --> Bone breaks around the knee and you will find others recovering from patella breaks. 
http://www.kneeguru.co.uk/KNEEtalk/index.php?board=21.0
Also make sure you are asking these questions of your OS and PT.  Each injury is unique so is each recovery.
Sending healing rays your way.
