I am a 66 year old woman with rheumatoid arthritis and bilateral knee joint destruction who had a right TKR on 9/17. During a PT session on October 10 my right patella broke (yes, you read that right). I am now awaiting surgical repair, which could not be done immediately because I was on aspirin therapy at the time of the fracture. I have been told this is a rare complication of TKR. Any additional information or words of encouragement would be welcome. I had been making good progress with ROM but wonder if I was pushed to gain strength before my bones were ready. Now I am almost completely dependent on my husband and lie around with the right leg immobilized from hip to ankle. Anyone who has also been in recovery for a broken patella, your feedback about what helped and didn't help would also be welcome. Thanks.
