Hi Stuart,

Well, the consultation went very well, I saw his registrar first who went through the time line of the history of all three previous ops/rehab etc. He then consulted with with his boss after which he came into the room.
More or less the conversation/examination was repeated with the specialist who, incidentally, didn't put the emphasis on my type 2 diabetic condition. He explained the risks of another op and asked was I willing to have another op to which I agreed. He said that he needed to view the last op notes and do an ultrasound scan to verify what condition the tendon is currently in before he would commit to another op however he said that if anything could be done he would do it.
I am now waiting for an appointment for the scan.

Hi,
I have since had the ultrasound scan on the 13th June 2015 and received an appointment to see the consultant on Monday 13th July 2015 however, this morning I have received a letter from the consultant explaining that although the tendon repair appears to be intact, there is extensive myositis ossificans in the lower part of the quad muscle. he goes on to explain that he believes that this makes any repair to my extensor mechanism extremely difficult and prone to stretch/failure.
The appointment on Monday is to discuss any future surgery as he feels that the odds for success are extremely low.
Any thoughts or experiences with this situation would be appreciated.
