8 months after Patella fracture?

Hi there,

I'm 36, male, 200lbs and usually pretty active... until this.

I broke my patella into 4 peices in Dec 09. The upper piece went way up my leg and the lower was broken into 3 and dragged down (out of the knee area as well).

I had surgery. They wrapped the cap in wire to hold it together and sent me off. I still have the wire in there and my knee is still quite big in size.

Can ANYONE tell me if they feel better after a patella fracture? I have torn my ACL, broken ankles, wrists and a bunch of other stuff.... but this is CRAZY.

9 months after injury and still can't do anything fun like play hockey or soccer.

How long did it take YOU to get better??

Thanks for any replies. I'm desperate.
