Thanks for that Hooligan

So I have bilateral petella alta then, and surgery will take a long time to recover from as it will take twice the amount of time.

But the thought of being able to do a wider range of activities is what will keep me going I think.  Currently I do a lot of spinning but have reduced the bodypump classes as lunges and squats are pretty difficult.  I'm hoping that one day I will be able to regain my ability to do this and I would love to be able to run.........just a little bit!

Yes, I will have to start saving some money now to pay for plenty of physio. 

Thanks for the advice, I will ask how many times the surgeon has performed this op - he did say that he likes doing the TTT as it has always had a good result - but he still thinks the LR should be done first!
