Fractured Patella-Anna’s story

Fractured Patella – A patient’s experience

I broke my knee cap on 1st October 2018. While I was in the garden, I  managed to trip over the dog and some wood and landed at 90 degrees on my right knee onto a paving slab. A rapid trip to A & E at Bury St Edmunds confirmed there was indeed a break – a patella fracture. This led to surgery later on that day to wire the knee cap together.
