patella tendon shortening surgery
« on: November 01, 2010, 03:19:36 PM »
I had patella tendon shortening surgery july 9th because my kneecap was out of place and am wondering if anyone has also had this surgery or something like it.  It is a rare surgery and I am not having any luck finding info.  I am at 70% knee bend with help and am using a walker to get around, I still have quite a bit of pain when I put a good amount of pressure on it while walking.  What I am mostly wanting to know is when have others been able to walk fairly well with cane at least and not much pain?  Thank you.
