Just keep in mind that your ROM will take longer to return than with other knee injuries. Lots of patience needed for that. I broke my patella 6/8/04 2 weeks before you and today my ROM is 107 but keep in mind it is extreme torture to reach it and I still have a long way to go. I am practicing walking up and down steps now without looking like an idiot. Good luck to you! I know how it feels.
