Patellar location X ray
« on: August 29, 2018, 02:17:38 PM »
Hey, guys. Just a quick one:

I had a 19 day follow up after a medial closing distal femoral osteotomy today. I had so many questions about things that, believe it or not, I forgot to have the doctor discuss today's X rays with me... Yeah, one of us should have remembered!

So having looked at the X rays, the lateral view below makes me wonder whether my patellar is looking alright? Is it overlapping with the trochlear groove or something similar, or is that normal for some to display that way?
I have been having a feeling like my patellar tendons or something in that area is catching and often I can't flex my leg back out of near full extension without some coercion.

I won't get to see a doctor for another four or five weeks.

It's rather late to give you a reply, but the patella seems ok. The X-ray is very slightly rotated, which you can tell because the two rounded ends of the femur are not quite aligned.
