Still Pain after Patellar Tendon Surgery
I had surgery to repair a large tear in my Patellar Tendon in May of 2017. I went through PT and was still feeling pain when kneeling on the knee at the end and when squatting but they told me it'll go away, this was in September. It is now almost February 2018 and it's still the same. Only time it's okay is when I'm playing basketball but if I stop for a little long the pain returns and I gotta break into it again.

Tell us something about your repair..was it tendon-tendon or tendons to bone. If you have not recovered by now, there might be stiffness or scarring in extensor apparatus. Go for CPM and Theraband exercises, ask your physiotherapist for that.
