Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

Hi...., Since the surgery for the dislocation of the patella is done, you will not get recurrent dislocation any more.., but you need to be careful.., do not exert much, use knee cap for few weeks until the wound is healed and the ligaments gets strengthened .., around 6 months afterwards you will have good health..
Hope I have answered your question..
