Hi, I'm a 25 year old male and I broke my femur on August 11, 2010 in a motocross accident. The next day I had surgery where they installed a titanium rod down the middle of the bone with two screws in the knee and two screws at the hip. I was on crutches for about two months until the doctor gave me the OK to start weight bearing. It's November 2, 2010 and I am walking. I've been walking for about a month, but I still have a pretty mean limp and it doesn't seem to be improving at all. I go to see my doctor again in two days and he will probably recommend me to physical therapy. I really hope that helps because it's getting frustrating not seeing any results. Has anyone else had a similar situation, and if so, how long after your break did it take until you started walking "normal" again?
