    What is the rehabilitation following a patella fracture?
    Following a patella fracture, patients will need to keep their knee in a straight position to allow for initial healing. Exactly when the knee can begin moving depends on the strength of the repair your surgeon is able to achieve. Gentle motion can usually begin in the first weeks following surgery.

    The most common complication of surgery for a patella fracture is that the metal implants can be painful over time--especially when kneeling. Because of this, it is not uncommon for a second procedure to remove the metal implants to be performed. This procedure is usually done at least a year after the initial surgery. Other possible complications include:

    Infection
    Non healing fractures
    Failure of the fixation to hold the fragments in place
    Kneecap pain (chondromalacia)
    Knee arthritis

    I think I'm going to need a break from the team. The blow is too much.

    I do agree with maxie that the lack of apparent ligament and tendon damage is very key.

    Agree Max. a guy like Bayless should now start playing a ton of minutes, get a look at Patty Mills when he's back, perhaps make a trade at the deadline.

    What? I've realized how emotionally attached I've become to the team. Maybe I just need to step back for a month and come back refreshed. The Oden injury hurt, bad.

    The best possible news would have been a dislocated kneecap (which is what I thought it was at the time). Fractured kneecap is one of the worst possible diagnoses.
