Patellar tendon rupture flexion
Hi – I had my right patellar tendon rupture and reattached on August 15th. About 8 weeks post op now. Question is, has anybody had this done and if so, when did your PT knee flexion exercises begin? My doc wants to wait 9 weeks out before any PT. I’m out of the brace but only have 70 degrees flexion. Don’t know whether to start flexion stretches or how hard. Doc says “let pain be my guide”. Well, given how tight the leg is, I’m afraid if I feel pain with any flexion stretch that might be the repair being torn. Just curious when others started their pt and how hard to push the flexion stretches. Tx!
