@Keithus and @NJ Pete, I'm also a Vermonter! I still live in the Norwich area.
I'm at the 4 week post-surgery for my biquad rupture - going in to meet with surgeon and ortho specialist tomorrow. Fingers crossed they lets me start bending and putting weight on the legs. I've been locked in Bledsoe braces at zero since this happened.
I'm firing the quad muscles really well with no pain and the incisions are healing very well (staples out two weeks ago).
@Shoonka, welcome to the club. I went to high school across the bridge in Hanover. I know the area a little. Your OS may or may not want you doing ANY movement. That is typical. Some do and some don't. If he does not let you until 6 weeks, stick with what you are doing. Follow the UW guide and it will get you where you need to be...with the exception of the ROM exercises. The quad setting is teh best possible thing you can do to maintain your quad strength. You are going to lose a little, but those exercises are VERY helpful.
