Is it swollen right now?
If you do all the forementioned, surgery shouldn't be necessary. Nickle and dime. Are you asking what exercises specifically to do? Have you used Epson Salt? Are you supplementing? Dieting?

Nah I won't need any more surgery, fingers crossed. They didn't need to put any wires in, so I'm pretty sure they won't need to take any out! The surgery I had was just to get my kneecap back in the right place, in one piece, and reattach the patella tendon. In New Zealand, any accident-related injury is mostly paid for by the government (the big ticket items like surgery and hospital stays are fully funded and they also cover stuff like taxis to and from work if you can't drive).

I go see the surgeon again late next week and then hopefully he'll clear me to start rehab. So yeah any suggestions for exercises would be helpful.

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

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

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!
