Recovery time for fractured patella?
« on: June 28, 2020, 07:22:06 PM »
I fractured (shattered) my patella in a car accident about 6 months ago. It did not require surgery. It feels worlds better now, but it still hurts occasionally. For example, if I've been sitting in a chair for a long time and then I stand up, I feel a little pain in my knee for a few seconds. Or if I ride a bicycle for a long time, I start to feel a little pain in my knee. The pain is typically very mild but I was just curious if/when I can expect this type of pain to stop occurring. Can anyone shed some light on the time-frame for the recovery? When I broke my finger in the past, it really took a full 18 months for all the little pains to stop. I was just wondering if I should be expecting a similar time-frame for my knee.
