patella fx and patella tendon rupture

Has anyone had the experience of a fractured patella (in half and fx into three pieces at the bottom) and a ruptured patella tendon?  After I did it I never had any pain and very little after surgery, could this be due to the fact that I was exercising using an eliptical practically every day prior to my injury?  Everything I read is one or the other not both at the same time. I am scared because the rehabilitation sounds auful for either one and I have both.  Has anyone gone thru rehabilitation and not had agonizing pain?  I have had nothing but spasms/cramping in my foot and numbness.  Any sugestions for this problem would be appreciated.  It has been 5.5 weeks since my injury.  Thanks for any help and experiences.
