Cracked Patella
My friend had a cracked patella but did not have medical aid so went toa State Hospital - they took an x-ray and then put on a full leg cast which he had on for 6 weeks - they took the cast off on MOnday but did not do another x-ray - his knee is still sore - how long does this take to go away and would you suggest maybe buying a knee brace - he is on medical aid now - told him maybe he should go and have an x-ray done to see how knee has healed
