I had my patella replaced 6 months ago. I don't know of anyone else that had the kneecap replaced to compare recovery with. I still have a lot of swelling and much pain going down stairs. I have been doing all the therapy and walking and as much activity as possible. When should I fell like this surgery was worth it??
