For all physio's, docs etc on board, please help

My missus needs patellofemoral ligament reconstruction and is currently being treated by physio's awaiting experimental surgery.  The waiting time for this is as long as a piece of string, and whilst it will happen, she is left in limbo.  She has been given three exercises to strengthen her lack of quad, due to injury, one being a partial bodyweight squat but that is all as her knee cap buckles unpredictably.  She has been told that swimming, the only form of sport she enjoys is a no go due to a screw kick motion and rigid pressure on the knee.  This is getting the pair of us down, any ideas/suggestions?
 
Thanks.

    Sorry to hear this mate!

    A guy i play basketball with snapped his cruciate ligaments. He wore a knee brace for a while after, this seemed to help keep his leg more stable. Does your missus have one already?

    Regards from your Metallica disciple.

    The problem is the ligament is over stretched which means the knee cap disslocates easily to the left,  she's currently trying the McConnell(sp) method to re align the tracking of the knee cap and kinesio taping as support and to drain the lymphatic fluid.  A brace wouldn't help me auld mucker.

    I take it light rowing/exercise bike kinda stuff might be out of the question?

    I don't know to much about ligament problems, but from what ive heard from people who have had them is that surgery is about all that can be done.

    Thanks for the replies my friend in metal aye, pretty much any exercise is out of the question, just a few specific movements with a specific way of doing them.  Pain in the knee so it is!
