Broken Patella
« on: December 15, 2013, 08:13:42 PM »
Broke knee cap in 3 places in June 2013. Had operation and repaired with pins and wires. Wore big brace for 2 months. Started Physio end of August 2013. Now it is Dec. 2013. I go to physio 3 times a week and truly do all my exercises at home on the off days.
It is nearly 6 months now. My knee will bend rather nicely to 80 degrees and with a good push by the physio person will do 85 degrees. Physio says we have to get to at least 90 degrees or more in order to start to work on getting the Quad stronger.
Surgeon wants to take the wires and pins out very soon as it may help my range of motion.
I am a skiier, curler, runner - this is taking a very long time. 
This is my first time on a blog ever.

Does anyone have any good news story for me?  Will my knee bend maybe within the next 6 months.

Yes, keep doing your exercises and you will be fine in 3 or 4 months from now.
