Joining the Quad tendon tear group

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all, I tore my quad tendon walking in snow.  Had surgery on Wed Feb 27.  I was walking with out crutches by Sunday and back to work on Tues.  I carry one crutch with me just incase.  I am in a straight leg brace and will have staples removed on Thurs the 15th.  I am wondering what is the next step.  How long will have to wear this brace and when will I get on that will bend a little and be more comfortable.  I am having a very difficult time sleeping, can't get comfy.  I am so happy to have found this site and hope that you guys who have gone through this can help me understand what the steps are to recovery.  My surgeon keeps giving the wait and see when I ask him questions. thanks so much
