I I fell and broke my patella in half on dec 30 2014. I had surgery on Jan 2.  My recovery has been slow. I am at about 100 ROM. PT is slow now because the wires are visiblbly coming through my kneecap and makes doing everything painful. I am having surge

I am worried about the recovery time and set back it will cause
I am concerned that at my age,62,I will never be the same. My good leg and back hurt all the time. Any advice would be appreciated

Broken patella
« on: April 26, 2014, 02:18:13 PM »
I fell on Dec 30 while visiting my mother in her rehab facility. I broke my patella in half and had surgery on Jan 2. I have made slow progress and am only at 100 degrees ROM. The wires are almost coming through my kneecap and I am scheduled for removal on May 6. I am worried that it is too soon but assured by my Dr that my fracture is healed. The pain is getting intolerable and I can't make any progress. Any words of encouragement?
