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.
