Pat Croce suffered a potentially devastating setback in his rehabilitation process yesterday when X-rays showed no bone growth, a sign of healing, in the broken left leg he suffered last June. As a result, a second operation is scheduled for this morning. Croce, the optimistic president of the 76ers, is scheduled to undergo surgery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania at 8 a.m. today, where Dr. William DeLong will remove screws from the top of a rod that has been in Croce's leg since June.

PITTSBURGH - Beth Docherty is still healing. It was not until she reached her 30s that she felt she had overcome most of the shame and guilt from being sexually abused by a music teacher at age 15. Even after getting married, she found it hard to have an intimate relationship. Docherty, 43, who lives in the Pittsburgh's North Hills, said despite the fact the teacher was charged and convicted, the ordeal was far from over for her. "You can't just heal from all that pain and all that damage that was done just instantaneously," she said.

Fleeting images of an unrecovered past haunted her for years. "I had the disquiet inside and I had some fragments of memory," said Sara Steele. But Steele, 37, a Mount Airy artist, didn't know what it was that she never quite remembered - only that, despite a successful career, she never felt very good about herself. She painted bright, pretty, floral watercolors that led to one-woman shows, illustrated best-selling calendars and adorned posters for liberal causes. All the while, darker images assaulted her. They originated in her childhood but, she says, "I knew I couldn't look in my family album and find them there.

President Reagan will speak to the nation from the Oval Office Wednesday night to tell his side of the Iran-Contra affair now that the 12 weeks of public hearings on Capitol Hill are over, a White House official said yesterday. "We want this to be a speech that continues the healing process," the official said. "We hope it will give the president the opportunity to put in perspective the hearings and the whole Iran-Contra matter, to talk about accountability and to then lay out steps being taken to deal with what went wrong," he said.

IT'S QUITE unfortunate that the statute of limitations has run out for two young women, now police officers, who claim that their stepfather sexually abused them. Bringing a case to closure can help victims heal, no matter how much time has passed. There are hundreds of cases each year in Philadelphia of children abused by someone they know. The Philadelphia Children's Alliance works to ensure that when there is an allegation of sexual abuse, there is a coordinated, efficient response that puts the child's best interests at the forefront.

Villanova point guard Jonathan Haynes, who had surgery on his right foot Monday, will be sidelined indefinitely, the school said yesterday. The university also confirmed that team orthopedic surgeon Robert Good had inserted a screw into a stress fracture in the fifth metatarsal, a bone on the inner side of the foot. The screw is intended to speed the healing process. The stress fracture, first diagnosed on Nov. 1, is unlikely to heal completely by the end of the season, but Haynes might be able to resume playing anyway.

The Oakland Coliseum, home of the Oakland Athletics, is in an area seemingly unaffected by Tuesday's earthquake. The roadway around the stadium was solid in both directions, and a cruise around the parking lot showed no damage to the pavement. Inside the 48,219-seat ballpark, groundskeepers mowed the outfield and groomed the base paths at the same time workers at Interstate 880 continued to look for possible survivors and bodies of those who had died in the collapse of the two-tiered road.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - When he started out as a Penn State assistant coach in 1979, Tom Bradley didn't figure that fulfilling a dream to become head coach at his alma mater would begin under such an extraordinary circumstance - a child sexual abuse scandal. Bradley found himself in the center of a firestorm when he was named interim head coach Wednesday night immediately after the board of trustees fired Joe Paterno. He appealed for "class and dignity" from players, students, and fans, and said he was proud of the way they acted before and during Saturday's game against Nebraska.

I'm ripping up my Lars Von Trier fan club card. With the brutal, and brutally pretentious, Antichrist , the Danish provocateur and founder of the Dogma school (rules to make your movie by) has finally gone too far. Fusing the carnal intensity of Breaking the Waves (I was with it) with the horror-movie schtick of his Danish TV series The Kingdom (I was with that, too), and piling on religious symbolism, cloaked misogyny (in the guise of feminist doctrine) and graphic scenes of genital mutilation and torture, Von Trier has delivered a movie designed to abrade and repel.

For the millions who've torn a tendon - from the bagel-slicing homeowner who cuts his hand open to the pitcher who wrecks his rotator cuff by throwing one too many fastballs - the healing process generally results in scar tissue. That means a joint that's less flexible and not nearly as strong. Many patients, once recovered from a tendon injury, will tear it again. But when tendons are damaged in a fetal mouse, they grow back almost like new. In a recent breakthrough, researchers found that this occurs even when the fetal tissue is transplanted into an adult.
