Wow is what I have to say after reading so many posts. I have a feeling I am in deep trouble. While repairing the floor in our old church building I took a nasty fall through the floor twisting turning and landing hard under the building. I was alone and unable to use my left leg. I say God gave me the strength to pull my overweight body up and out of the broken floor, outside the building I rolled uphill through a thousand grass burs to the parsonage, calling and crying out for help from my wife. At last she heard me and found me dragging up the front steps of our house
That was Wednesday May 2nd, The PA at the Emergency room put me in a leg / knee immobilizer called it a knee sprain with advise to follow up with a doctor if the pain persisted. Cut to the chase now..and on May 7th had a MRI, on May 8th it was confirmed I had a 50 to 60% tear in the distal tendon and another tear in the Quad tendon.
Today is the 10th and I am scheduled to see a surgeon tomorrow.
I know( I HOPE ) my situation is not as bad as most who have gone this way before me but can anyone tell me, what am I expecting as a timeline up to till I can walk normal.
