Broken Knee Cap

I spend all of my time at work either in a deep hole or up in the air. This i have done for many years without mishap. One day on my way home from work my wife  phoned me and told me to get a curry on the way home which i did. I pulled up outside and walked towards the door . As i did i feel over a 1ft high wall and fell over . I was taken to hospital where they told me i had broken my left knee cap. Now , if ever you want to hurt someone without killing them break thier knee cap. i ended up with a 6 inch scar down my knee and the medical promise of a knee replacement in the future . Has anyone else in here broke thier knee cap ? . let me know please

Yes, that's what baseball bats are for. [Hurting someone without killing them]. Ouch - you poor thing!

OUCH, I am so sorry to hear that. It sounds painful.

No better for you.

You dont realise what a great bit of engineering your knee is until you damage it. I was compensated loads thru insurance but id send all the money back to have my knee as it was . I reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeealy dont want a knee replacement. its been 2 years now -Feb 16 18.32 2007 (its inbedded in my brain) and my knee hurts every day and will only get worse.

Ouch. I have never broken my knee cap but I dislocated it about 5 years ago and I can somewhat sympathize cause it hurt like hell. It still hurts from time to time
