Patellar tendon

I had surgery on March 3rd to attatch my patellar tendon back to my kneecap, I haven't seen a surgeon since the surgery and would like to know what I should be doing? Keep weight totally off for 2 weeks, keep it elevated, or weight bear as tolerated but how much is too much considering?

you need to contact your surgeon to answer these questions.  The answers vary depending on the quality of the repair and his own post-op protocol.
