Not the drug/alcohol kind!
Back on September 15th, I ripped the patella tendon off the patella of my left leg taking a piece of the patella with it. That night I had surgery to re-attach it. Since then I've spent a week in a knee immobilizer, a week in a brace with 0-degree flex, a week with 30-degree flex, and this week with 40-degree flex.
Today I start rehab with a PT and I am dreading it. I think that this is the closest I will ever come to torture in my lifetime. The knee is still swollen somewhat and bending it even slightly makes it feel like it is going to explode. The quad muscle in my leg is atrophied and looks to be tender enough for Hannibal Lector.
I need some good success stories about PT/rehab. Hope some are out there!
