old patella tendon injury

I had what i now believe to be a patella tendon sprain or tear about 4 years ago playing basketball. I have not been able to get surgery due to lack of funds and no insurance. What are my chances of a suceessful surgery or is it too late or any suggestions please.?

Hello!

I would suggest you to go for a present day X-ray to understand if you had any complications for your symptoms and to diagnose your condition and healing near an orthopedician before proceeding ahead.

You would need surgery only if your sprain or tear has not healed. If healing is complete you would need to do physiotherapy for strengthening the tendon.

Take care!
