09:31 am: My knee is metal(-ish)
I got to see my post-surgery knee x-rays for the first time. I figured they'd have needed to incorporate quite a bit of scaffolding to hold the pieces in place. After all, I managed to break my patella into five pieces. And yes, there it is.

The left picture is the front-on view, the right picture is the side-on view. (The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that the left view is upside down. I didn't realise until after I put the pictures together & I can't be arsed fixing it.) In the side-on view, a gap is still evident; the pieces haven't joined up properly yet.

But the good news is that I am now allowed to put weight on my left leg. That's really helped with mobility & overall self-confidence, but we're still in the early months of the recovery process. And overall it is "good news"; the healing is on-track.
