Has anybody out there ever shattered their kneecap?....if so please comment. Yes, I did the classic endo and unfortunately I picked a bad landing spot on some rather large rocks with my knee losing the battle. The orthopedic surgeon was able to salvage two thirds of my kneecap (patella) by sewing the busted pieces together, a procedure of never knew of until now. This happened back in early Nov. and now it is early Feb. and I am now off the crutches in a brace and going to physio but it seems to me like a long road. Although no one really gives me a straight answer on the prognosis I'm really hoping to ride my favourite singletrack trails like I use to but I'm very worried that my knee will not be up for the challenge.
