Hey All,
Itís been a while since I was here, but I just had a patellectomy after a life-long journey with knee issues.  This was not a planned patellectomy, they planned to put in a new plastic cap... but the patella was destroyed beyond repair and nothing left to attach another replacement too. Sadly.  Also have bovine Achilles patch on medial retinaculum.
Has anyone else had patellectomy?  Wonder what my long term outcome will be like.
