Sorry another ruptured patella tendon
« on: July 23, 2013, 05:47:08 PM »
Hi all,

I was hoping someone could provide some quad strengthening exercises as my hospital as been extremely slow with this and then put me forward to have to my wire removed well before it was due out. *Sigh*. My current state of affairs is as follows.

*May 15 - Full ruptured patella tendon
*May 22 - Surgery
*6 weeks in cast
*Now in week 2 of  brace set at 30 degree.

The surgeon I saw today who cancelled my op (wire out) said I should have the brace at 60 degrees now and should start some strengthening excises for my quad but I haven't been given any. Any advice on exercises, websites to see would be gratefully appreciated. Just waiting for PT to come through but going to start some privately. If anyone can recommend any decent PT's for knee injury's in the CR0 area I would gratefully appreciate it

Hi Anthony

Delighted that you have now posted on KneeGuru, but would you repost it on Ruptured Patella Tendon Surgery which is the correct web page covering lots of posts on a RPT injury.

Keep posting
