I had a transverse fracture of my patella and am 4 weeks post op.  My leg needs to be kept straight, and in  a brace.  I can shower.  However, I just moved and have a bathtub with a shower.  Does anyone have a recommendation for some sort of seat that can straddle the side of the bathtub so that I sit on it and rotate around to be sitting on it in the bathtub?

Welcome to KneeGuru - put "Shower seat for elderly", into google - good choice of lightweight seats to place in a shower or bathtub.
