shattered patella surgery. questions about recovery time
« on: November 18, 2010, 05:18:28 AM »
Hello, I am 22 years old and am an amateur professional snowboarder. Last week i shattered my patella on a rock and had surgery on friday. I broke it into 8 pieces and they tied them back together with fiber, screws, and different hardware. I am anxious to get back out on the snow and get back to doing what i love and was wondering if anyone out there had any insight as to how long this recovery process is going to take? I can't bend my knee for 6 weeks but i am already baring weight on it. If anyone has any info they can offer me i would much appreciate it.

thank you
