Quad tendon surgery in a few days...Im freaking out!
« on: June 19, 2010, 02:37:39 PM »
Hi, I ruptured my quad tendon a few weeks ago and Im going in for surgery in a few days.  Im very scared and very upset and Im looking for some comfort from people who have been through this.  My patella has subluxed 9 times since February 2nd and this last time I fell awkward and ruptured the tendon.  I was going from having arthroscopic to fix the subluxation to this.  I have a one and a half year old baby and Im concerned what our life is going to be like over the next few months.  Any words of wisdom would be so gratefully appreciated.   :(

Hi

You are on the wrong thread - there is a specific thread for persons who have suffered a Ruptured Quadricep tendon - you are in for a long haul to recovery.

Have a look at the undermention correct thread and post details of your injury on it.

 http://www.kneeguru.co.uk/KNEEtalk/index.php?topic=33177.new#new

Would suggest that you apply for a car disabilty badge, as this made a big difference to me.  Don`t attempt to drive until you can depress the brake pedal, otherwise you will invalidate you insurance policy.

If you wish to let me have your e-mail address, I will send you three documents which will give you help and an idea of the rehab procedure.

Take care
