On March 2,2011 I fell and fractured my patella from the north to the south into two pieces. Had surgery, two screws were used. By Sept. the knee had not fused and I am now on a bone stimulator machine fro two months. I still can't walk any distance withour pain and the knee feeling stiff. If I stand still for a short tme my knee gets stiff. Anyone have this problem and how was it fixed?
