6 weeks on, fracture has healed OK, first day of physio on the tendon yesterday.
Managed to get the straight leg raise going on the first day. It wasn't very bloody easy but I still got there!

I can't really give you any exercises because i can't watch you do them and make sure you're doing them properly.
I would say usually with this when you're rebuilding yuo'd start with terminal knee extension and then go resisted terminal knee and then to go past that you'd need someone monitoring it for sure.
Where abouts do you live if you dont mind me asking i'll ask around and see if i can find a good doc

Not supplementing other than a protein shake each day. Working out upper body 3x/week, eating pretty healthy but not dieting.

|jml22||Yeah, your leg is probably going to be tiny. Just gotta eat super clean/healthy while you're doing the rehab itll make your life 100 times easier.|

Cheers, I'll do some investigating.
It's still slightly swollen compared to my other knee, but not by a lot - the swelling has dropped off pretty significantly. I've got it immobilised in a brace at the moment and for at least another 2.5 weeks until I see the surgeon again. Basically pain free now as well (unless I sit in an uncomfortable position for a long period!).

Yeah, that'l help your recovery. If you can find a PT, Chiro, ortho to hook you up to some russian stim, that'll help your recovery a great deal.
Is it swollen right now?

My fitness and strength was pretty good before this all happened so hoping that'll help with the rehab too.

|jml22||Yeah, i'm more worried about the tendon than anything. I'd have to see your knee to guide you realistically. No reason why you can't rehab out of it though. Just make sure you ease into your rehab and be fully committed. Quadriceps atrophy is a pain in the ass sometimes|
