Re: Fractured Patella

I fractured my patella three weeks ago in auto accident. My doctor tells me by my xray that the lower portion of my patella is fractured clean across but is not displaced. He put me in a splint and on cruches ,to follow up every two weeks for xrays. he also said he didn't think I had any tendon damage, because i'm able to lift and staighten my leg. I'm a competitive cyclist and i'm worried that I might not fully recover for this.. should I be. Phil

Featuring a higher narrower waist and a more tapered thigh area than our men's compression shorts for better fit and reduced creeping. Intera-lined crotch panel incorporates a single center seam for extended comfort.
