Comment : Broken Femur
Posted by Bruce Jackson on Wed 4:09pm 27 February 2008
I had an atv accident August 21, 2007.
Two rods fixed the neck of my femur and I was home in two days.
I hopped around, wheelchaired around, crutched around--and my bones showed growth after two months.
My leg was bent up to my ear. The soft tissue is still hurting--but only when I walk. I stoped the lortabs and I am afraid of overduing tylenol and aspirin for what little relief they bring.
When people ask me if it still hurts, I don't think they want to hear my honest answer--which is yes.
But, I can't help but limp. It's been six months. Will it eventually quit hurting?
