BILATERAL QUADRICEP TENDON TEARS

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

Hello people. I stumbled onto this site and I read some of the articles here. I'm glad that I found a place where I can share my experience and get feedback from real people who have either gone through it or are going through it. Thank you all in advance for reading and responding. I look forward to hearing from you. so.., thank you.

 

I am a 30 year old EMT here in NYC. I've been an EMT since I was 18 years old. I've never ever had an injury nor have I ever been a patient for any reason, EVER. I have dedicated my life to helping people who are in need. Okay, now the story. On December 1, 2011, I was given a job to take an obese patient home. This lady was 5'4 and approximately 375lbs. The lady stated that she couldn't walk, otherwise she was fine. So once we get her to her building, it turns out that she lived, on the top floor. So, we had to put her on a stair chair. It's basically a chair with two back wheels and straps to secure the patient to the chair. This chair weighs 25 pounds.. So, we were lifting 400lbs. The staircase, as you can imagine was narrow. The steps themselves were steep and each step was a different height. To make matters worse, there was an old rug on the stairs that covered the whole staircase. It's protocol for the person on top to walk up backwards..Because my partner was uncomfortable with the top, I took the top an he took the bottom. Now that the scene is set...here we go.

 

We began our ascent and in the middle of the staircase, there was a raised portion of the staircase that wasn't scene during our initial inspection. It came in contact with my foot, twisted my body and I went down. Since the rug was old, my feet didn't give. They stayed planted as if in cement. So, my knees bent and my feet didn't move. All 400 pounds of this patient and equipment came crashing down directly on my legs. As a result of this

my behind was now on the same step as my boots. *Remember, my boots never moved*.. I heard several loud popping sounds..then, the pain ensued. Those sounds are unforgettable, as is the pain. Later, I found out that my quadriceps tendons were totally severed from my quads and torn from my patella (knee cap).

 

I had my surgery on Sunday Dec. 4, 2011. I've been in casts and on meds ever since. Today is Jan. 16, 2012. This past Monday, January 9th, my left cast was removed and I was given a Bledsoe Brace, which would allow me to start physical therapy up to 30 degrees. My right leg remains in a hard long leg cast until January 30th because it was damaged way worse. As the surgeon said, "it was as if a bomb blew up in my right knee". So, on the 30th, hopefully I will get this cast off and I can begin therapy with the right leg as well. My first therapy session was on the 10th of January..By my second therapy session which was Thursday the 12lfth, I was able to bend my knee all the way to 30 degrees!!!! My PT and i were both amazed and surprised and of course pleased. I thank God for this progress and pray for and expect more progress. Thank God for healing!! 

 

I'm telling this story because i would like to know if anyone has had a complete tear of the quad tendon as I have, and what your experience was or is.

 

Thanks for your time and feedback.

Hi. 

 

I replied to your post before I read your full account.  What I see is, on one hand, your injury is much worse than mine, as I had only a quad tendon rupture on my right knee and your case is bilateral.  However, you are a young man--30 years of age--so your recovery will benefit from that.  You should take heart in that I'm going on 58 and my recovery has been effectively complete at 10 months and counting.  As you are a fire fighter, I'm preaching to the choir about the need for hard work and fitness.  My cycling for long distances was key in my ability to withstand pain, get into a tough recovery schedule and follow through.  You will do well and recover fully.  Of that I'm sure.

 

And thanks for all your service.  People like you are the best there are.

Hey Ernie:

 

Thanks so kindly for your response. I do appreciate it. It's been a bit rough man.. Sitting here in the same chair day after day after day.....Ernie, it's crazy man!!!!!  I'm glad I can talk to you about this. i appreciate it. Hey let me ask you a question. How long was your knee area swollen, post surgery?? 

post #4 of 21

Hi.  My knee was swollen for about 10 days, and then after PT it would swell up for a few hours.  Immediately after surgery, it also bled for a few days.  The first 6 weeks stink.  Ern

Hey Ernie:

 Thanks for the response. My knee is still swollen. My surgery was on December 4th. I haven't had any bleeding. I had a concern about developing deep vein thromosis (dvt), which was the initiative for asking about swelling. I have no other symptoms of dvt. I just want to know if this prolonged swelling after a surgery like this is normal, or a cause for concern. I know.. i know.. i'm a horrible patient. They say that care givers make the worst patients.. lol..

Just come across this forum whilst searching around for info.

Found the thread on quadriceps tendon rupture the best I have found and I have searched and searched the net.

I was going to tag on to the main thread to see if anybody had done the double and ripped both? I have!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Then found that at least one of you have done the double.

 

Mine occurred whilst as a friend described I was Stunt Fishing.

Slipped once on a steep wet river bank banging my left knee, tried to stand up and me and  they both went.

The journey back up the bank on my backside and using my hands to a place I could be found was an endurance test to say the least.

My accident was whilst we were camping near Hereford (UK). The famous SAS have their base there and I am sure they would of been proud, the pain or lack of from me knees was nothing compared to the nettle stings that lasted far beyond any post operation pain.

 

Had my op the same day just over 4 1/2 weeks ago, none weight baring in braces set currently to 90 I can do around 75.

The specialist said yesterday that after 6 weeks I will be partial WB using crutches still in braces for 2 weeks and then 2 weeks on crutches with my braces off.

Remember those outside the UK that we have public health services, the NHS, some good bits and some not so good.

One of the downsides is that because we don't pay they don't feel that have to tell us much or explain fully what is going on.

Find lots of conflicting advice is given, do this, don't do that, go to the pain etc.

 

Must admit I am crapping myself at the thought of crutches having done both legs.

I have looked on line as to how this is done egg a 4 point gait, however an Argentinian Tango looks easier to learn and do,

 

So anybody have and experience of the dreaded double who could help out?

post #7 of 21

Guess I am part of a club that has thankfully very few members?

 

Spend my days watching TV making my way through the DVDs of the Sopranos series, stretching and exercising every hour or so during the day and a good stretch in the early evening.

Now 5 weeks post op, I can do 3 sets of 10-15 reps of leg extensions on both legs, doing what I was told and concentrating on lockout. I rest my knees, one at a time on a 4 pack of Tuna tins wrapped in a towel, guess the dia is around 4". I bought a 6" dia + 30" hard foam roll and I can do extensions over a fuller range, all be it fewer as I have been told not to put too much strain on the repairs at this time. After reading a tip I mainly use the larger roll whilst working to increase my ROM, placing this under my knees and pulling it back towards me and slowly rolling it back up my hamstrings, this raises my knees and thus stretches them.

Last week the stand-in Doctor changed my braces, I had been wearing Breg. Whilst they are bit more comfortable as they are NHS issue they are a bit clunky have no mid stage lock off and I find the degree gauge difficult to read to assess what my current ROM is, I would guess around 75. Whilst I am not sure, I have reached my latest goal of being able to bend both knees and I can just about get the flats of my feet fully on my bed.

Also working hard on foot flexion and do hundreds of foot extensions using an exercise band as resistance.

Whilst I can do straight leg lifts I have been told not to do many at this stage, seeing the therapist today and will be seeing what I can do as I work toward standing and using crutches next week.

Whilst I am hacked off about my injuries, more than happy with my progress thus far.

Only problems I have is sleeping longer than 5 hours, I wake without pain in my hips and back, if I dose for another hours or so I wake with lots of pain these areas, this is of cause linked to having to sleep on my back. I am trying what I can to keep my hips mobile, small pelvic lifts etc and stretching my back, hamstrings etc by toe touching and holding.

Once I am awake and sat up the old bowels wake up quickly, thankfully not that fast that I have missed my allotted time. Must admit that I hate this time as I am stiff and in relative pain when I have to transfer from my bed to the commode.

Apart from my legs I am working hard on keeping upper body strength, ready for the dreaded crutches, using a collection of exercise bands, triceps dips in my chair etc.

Resisted turning to comfort eating and have if anything lost weight to make the next stage easier ( not that I was fat in the first place ) background of Martial Arts when younger then Body building to a national standard in my 30's I am now 53 and have continued to go to the gym 3 - 4 days a week. Currently around 225lb at 6' 2", admit that I have not trained my legs anywhere near how I used to, partly as I now work in an office and have to wear dress up clothes, I found buying trousers a real problem. Thinking that if I had have worked my legs more I would not have been in this bloody chair now. They have not found any underlying problems that may have contributed to the big ripp off and as we say in the UK 'I am as Fit as a Butchers Dog'.

post #8 of 21

Guess us that do the double now remain in a very small club?

 

Could not be happier with how my legs have began to recover, now 13 weeks post op's.

I have been weight baring for the last 6 weeks and out of the braces at week 8. Walking at first with two crutch for three weeks, one for one weeks and now on to a walking stick.

My ROM in both is now 110 degrees, with my right knee being slighty weaker of the two.

I have rehabed by DVD box set series and found that an episode ending was about right timing to do my next set of stretches, etc.

Thus far worked my way through the Suprano's, Band of Brothers and on the final series of Prison Break.

 

Only downside has been an F'ing DVT in my upper left thigh, serious pain 4 weeks ago and now on Rat Poison.

Feel ripped off by the Doc's as the likelyhood of getting a DVT is not far from Odds on and they don't warn you whats coming.

Following a DVT the chances of post thrombotic syndrome is again just about Odds on and they again don't tell you whats coming.

 

The DVT forums make very depressing reading but Hay I thought I would never walk again when I did the double.

Guess I will just have to live with a left balloon leg from now on.

post #9 of 21
Just found this blog. I'm 58 tear old male from upstate NY and I suffered a bilateral QTR on 10/23/2012 while on my normal trail run. No unusual event just the left foot down, exposition and crumpled onto the right side. I'm 5'6", about 155lbs and healthy. No real obvious reason. On hypertensive meds and a statin.

Had surgery the next day and now non WB for nearly 5 weeks. Expect that they will insist on at least 6 weeks and maybe 8. You folks do any active leg work while non WB? My surgeon wants only passive range of motion to 45 for now. I see him again this Friday and plan to push for some isometric exercises. Bored and losing muscle mass at an incredible pace. Feel like I have marshmallows for quads. Have otherwise done well with no dvt's, swelling or current pain issues.

Any suggestions/experiences rehab/expectation wise would be appreciated.
post #10 of 21

Researched the subject and found a massive difference in what to do and what not to do's.

I was originally told passive only, although this is difficult in reality, yer pull your leg (legs) up with your hands or with a band then how do you get them back straight?

Reasoned that if I could not directly work my Quads, I would try and keep the rest of me working and did every exercise I could without moving my Quads, too much.

I did hundreds of ankle foot pushes with bands as resistance, rolled my feet, wiggled my toes.

Clenched my butt, did part crunches, seated twists, tricep dips in my chair, band and small weight upper body exercise and still ended up with a DVT.

Things changed once I started seeing our local NHS physio's and having another appointment with a 'specialist' they were all for pushing me on after about 4 weeks.

The advice then was do what ever I could barring putting full weight through my legs, using pain as a stop point.

I did partical leg extensions even though I had a lot of should not do them and yes you can advice, straight leg raises with the same advice.

I was seen by another 'specialist' at week 6 who tested my leg strength with 'straight leg raises' and seen again at week 10 and asked to do the same tests.

I am now walking most of the time in the house without sticks etc, still need loads more quad strength that is coming slowly.

Even though I had tried to keep everthing else in some form of condition. I find that everday something else shows it needs work, for example my lower back will start and ache and then my lower abbs will ache.

Read a lot on inbalances and guess I will just have to wait until my quads get back to a level when I can trust them and then do more of what I can to strengthen all the rest.

 

In a nut shell do what ever you can without too much pain, I have been carefull not to push anything to much and risk another injury to for example my back.

Although I did strain my abbs by doing to much to soon. I have been constantly told to work on increasing my ROM and broke through the 110 degree point after 10 weeks or so.

It appears that this a mark of improvement the doc's like, however increases of ROM just kicks off another 'daily' period of re-adjustment of all the rest. 

 

Good luck and crack on.

Much appreciated. Have a conservative surgeon who I see tomorrow at 5+ weeks. Expecting ok for isometrics and maybe other non WB rehab. Am not expecting the ok to start initial WB for another 2-3 weeks when I assume the crutches with the mobilizer will start. That will be interesting as the legs, normally pretty strong, feel like mush.
post #12 of 21

You are right about this being a small club. I had both QTR's almost at the same time as well. I am getting a second opinion on my progress tomorrow from another orthopedic group. My injury happened back on June 9th, 2012. From day one, I was able to WB on both legs. Recently, I was told I was fully healed and ready to hit the gym as hard as I would like within reason. I have been cleared for all activity by my doc.

For some strange reason I can't straighten out my legs. Both legs will not straighten even when I am flexing all the way through. It does not seem like a strength thing but more of a limitation. It is the strangest thing. I can squat and press up from the 90 degree position with almost no problem, but I can't get my legs to straighten out to zero degrees. Has anyone else experienced this? I have had some folks tell me since I had the method where they drill the 3 holes through my patella and reattach the tendon slightly down on my patella that way that the mechanics of my legs will never be the same. My surgeon keeps telling me things will be alright in time. What is odd is that in a flexed position my leg will not extend to zero degrees unless I stop flexing.(My wife tries to pull my leg all the way out but it won’t go) It is if mechanically the leg will not function like that(extend to the zero position). This issue causes me major problems when walking. Often I get caught in the “zone”(I call it) where one of my legs is extended beyond its capable range of straightness and I fall or almost fall.

I will find out tomorrow what is going on now. I have had a new ortho place run xrays and MRIs’ on both knees. I will let you know the outcome. Seems not many surgeons have ever experienced a patient who has had this happen. I wish I could talk to someone. Please PM me if someone is out there. I need to talk.

Thanks

post #13 of 21

Folks, I found out yesterday that my Bi-lateral QTR's have not healed after 6 months. I am going to have them redone starting with right leg February 1st, 2013. My upcoming surgery February 1st, 2013 will entail knee scope to determine any other underlying issues, tendon augmentation and reattachment, and possibly a knee replacement if deemed so post scope. I am not certain why my surgeon allowed me to do WB immediately following and up to 90 degree ROM iscometrics 2 weeks post surgery. My thought at this point is he was 100% incorrect. The only thing allowing me to walk at this point are the sutures holding my tendon to my knee and some scar tissue from the tendon to the patella. At least that is what I was told. 

 

In the interim, I am seeking the best Ortho Docs in the country to get a 3rd and possibly a 4th opinion. It is upsetting that my healing clock can't really begin until my next surgery. The one benefit is that I will make sure this time around to listen to myself a little more. I am also compiling a basic list of what to do and not to do. Maybe all you folks can help. So far, I have 6 items.

 

Please let me know how everyone is doing.

 

Happy Holidays to you!!!

Friday I finally get to have my braces removed three months after surgery for a bi-lateral quadriceps rupture and really have no idea what to expect.  The braces have been at -10 degrees for the entire three months.  Other that standing leg raises of about six inches to the front, rear and sides, and toe raises, there has been no other physical therapy.  Will I be able to function without the braces immediately or will I need to be weaned off of them gradually?

 

Thank you!!!

Wondering if anyone has gotten back into running if they were running before the bilateral? I'm now 8 months out and find attempting to run very difficult.

Thanks

I was doing a middle distance run next to the Chicago lakefront on June 30, 2013, about 2 weeks before my 57th birthday. I suddenly fell hard on both knees after flying over a step that had been rendered invisible by bright sunlight. It felt like both knees were on fire and I could not stand up or walk. The initial x-rays and physical exam did not reveal anything wrong other than severe swelling. An MRI taken on July 18 revealed bilateral quadricep tendon rupture, and I had surgery to reattach both tendons on July 23. I wore large ankle-to-thigh knee braces for 40 days to keep my knees totally locked at minus 10 degrees. During that time I was able to walk with crutches, with no restrictions except for the knee braces. The braces came off at the beginning of September and I have since been working hard every day to regain knee bending and strength. My knee bending has increased from 45 degrees after the braces came off, to100 degrees today. My quadricep strength is gradually recovering; it had gone to zero after 9 weeks of inactivity. I can now leg press 90 lbs 20 times, compared to 270 lbs 20 times before the fall. I am optimistic that I can regain all of my range of motion and strength, and be able to run long distances again if I want to. I never thought that I could be injured so badly from running, so I might stick with stationary bicycles and elliptical machines for awhile.

@RunnerMX, this thread is not being checked any longer. I checked it because I posted on it before. Welcome to the Bilateral Quad Tendon Rupture club. I had them done in June of 2012. They did not take because of a lot of reasons. I had bot redone again this year. I am recovering like you. I still have a couple complications like: Patella catching and Malergia Parasthetica. Both have been a real pain in my leg. Anyway, please copy and paste your post over to this forum. There are other people there just like us.

I have been reading the posts here, dont know if anyone is still reading however i thought Id share my story. On May 8, 2013 i was at work and just simply walking down a few front steps (I was wearing work boots with 1 inch heels to climb ladders and poles) when my right foot slipped forward, with the heel catching the lip of the step. Now my right foot is pointing straight down and Im standing, I tried to put my left foot down (on the same step) to brace myself, unfortunately it did the same exact thing. Now Im standing up but both feet are pointing straight down. Don't know why but instead of falling forward or back I felt like someone jumped on my shoulders making me go into a fast power squat, that's when I heard the two pops one after another. I was laying face down on the ground, and remember trying to get up, and that's when i realized something wasn't rite. I felt like i broke both my knees.

 

I have never been sick (outside normal things flu, cold, sprained ankle) and never had any health issues before so this was shocking to me. I have to inform you also I just moved to this state (NH) a week before and my wife wasnt moved up yet, she was still in NJ. I knew NO ONE. Either way I was taken to the hospital and they took an MRI and sent me to a orthopedic surgeon. He diagnosed the bilateral quad tendons had snapped of of my knee caps (BOTH). I had to wait a week before my surgery which went well.

 

I was in two immobilizer braces and in a wheel chair for 4 months before I started PT. I did PT for 5 months, the right leg responded well and is getting better, the left never got off the ground, I still cant climb stairs if I use the left leg to lift, I have to go right leg first, still have pain when extending and no power in the lower quad. This resulted in a 2nd surgery 2 weeks ago today (today being Feb 17, 2014) on my left knee. The doc cleaned it up saw a couple things and now he said there is no guarantee it would help but it was worth a shot. I am now going to resume PT this week.

 

I will add that I was put on blood thinners to prevent clots, however I did end up with a clot in my lung which I have to say was just as if not MORE painful than my knees ever were. I am looking to see if anyone with this injury has fully recovered with no looming issues. I have resigned myself to the fact that this may be the best its going to be, but IM going to push hard in PT with hope I can get it as good at least as the right one.

@kruker, you are NOT alone. Noone reads this thread anymore. Please post up the same story on this thread - http://www.epicski.com/t/66016/quadriceps-tendon-rupture-repair-and-rehab/6030#post_1693817

 

I live in NJ and also lived in Vermont. I went to school in NH so I know there areas. My story can be found here. http://www.quadtendon.com/ptntprfles/Profiles/NJ-Pete-Story.aspx

 

I feel your pain. There are A LOT of people in the forum link I sent you above that have been through the same thing. There is NO general reason BOTH quad tendons rupture. There is typically an underlying systemic issue or because of cholesterol lowering drugs.

 

Please post up on the other thread I sent and I am sure several people will respond as well as myself.

Hi everybody from the Quadman BIrmingham England

I had bilateral quad surgery April 22nd 2014
I have made steady progress, I have been walking & on exercise bike for at least twenty weeks & have a personal trainer twice a week

I can now walk without a stick for the last 8 weeks but I still use it when I go out socially as I am still nervous about being knocked over or stumbling
I am fifteen stone so I would take some knocking over!
In general I train exercise every day however from removal of braces my right leg has felt different to my left leg I have seen specialists & may require a second operation on right leg to tighten the VM muscle which they think has either stretched or there is minor detachment

My PHysio tells me it appears my left leg has plateaued and my right leg is still increasing in strength I'm a little bit confused about what to do as he has told me to carry on exercising & see where I'm at in six months

I am 56 years off age & one thing I'm sure off is that I don't fancy any more surgery!
I remain very positive with my recovery program upwards & onwards & good luck to the Quad group

@The Quadman, sounds like you have been through a lot. There is no such thing as plateau. Please move your post over to this forum thread. No one checks this any longer.
