    Cheers lads

    Thought this was going to be a doddle, the pain states other wise, and as for the exercises I need to get them spot on of I will loose the range of knee movement for ever, been told by many the same thing so I'll be as good at it as I can,

    Cheers lads I hope everyone is well,

    Bob

    Stick at it and the rewards will be there. Like everything I suppose. Good luck with your recovery. I'm probably showing my ignorance, but what's patella? I thought you had your knee replaced with a type of pasta!

    Ow...

    Treat the recovery like a stalk; slow and steady.

    Take care

    Spot on ed, they shave the back of the knee cap off and line it with the same material used on the touching surfaces on the knee, it's a bit strange the American surgeon called it a patela the others called it the button, all I know is the rear of the kee cap was badly damaged so they done it while it was open etc.

    Cheers all for the good wishes, I had the op on Saturday last week and now at home on the long recovery with lots of exercises to be done,

    Cheers lads
