QTR - at what point (week) did you feel your tendon was strong enough to not re-injure?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I've had a hell of a time with this injury - QTR

I missed one step on the stairs in my own home, back in March - 71/2 months ago - and ruptured my L quadracept tendon.

It was repaired 2 days later and seemingly healed well - I was driving and going to re-hab, etc. At 9 weeks it re-ruptured - turned out it was infected and didn't heal right.

Second operation - 7 days in hospital this time.

8 week on intervenous anti-biotics (at home nurse every day for 4 weeks - Thank You Canadian health care system, it did not bankrupt us!) Another 3 months on oral antibiotics. Assume infection is gone and cross your fingers...

Now, 23 weeks on, I've got my range of motion back, and some of my strength, but I'm still scared - terrified actually - of a re re-rupture!

My question is this: At what stage, in weeks, did you feel that your tendon was almost as strong as it was - say 90 or 95%

How long did it take before you could excersize the leg without worrying.

Cheers,

Greg
