Hi Carkeltom.
I also ruptured both my left and right patellar tendons about 7 weeks ago. Left leg ROM 70 degrees and right leg ROM 50 degrees. Please give as much advice as you can. What is your current ROM now?

Hi rexevo

See that you have already made contact with one current double RPT.

As suggested yesterday, log onto Ruptured Patella Tendon Surgery, as there are  3 or 4 fellow double RPT - you need to gain as much information as possible.
