patellar tendon: stronger or weaker after surgery?
I tore my patellar tendon almost 4 years ago. I had surgery the day of the rupture and went through intense physical therapy for 4 months. Is my knee now just as strong as it once was, or just as strong as the other or will there always be a slight tendency to re-tear the tendon while performing athletic or vigorous activities and I must always be cautious of what I do?

Once repaired any tendon will not have the strength as Original resistance. You have to do controlled exercise under the aegis of a Physiotherapist and informing your Orthopaedician.
Take care!
