29 y.O female. Diangosis patella baja following orif for ruptured patellar tendon (hardware placed). Surgery next week. What should I expect post op?

Ask doc. In general the skin takes 10-14 days to heal. The patella tendon portion of the surgery will take 6 weeks for the primary tendon repait o heal during which time you will probably be immobilized fr 2 weeks then braced adnallowed motion (rate limited by your surgeon) ultimatley will start muscle strengthening which may take 3-4 months.
