 Re: Complete femoral neck fracture
dcb_Debra    6:27am Feb 7 2018

Sympathies for this. Mine was only an ankle, so no direct experience to relate, I'm afraid.

When are you expecting x-rays to check how it's healing? Reading the medical literature, I'd expect you to have checks at about 6 weeks and 12 weeks. And crutches/toe-touch might continue until that 12-week mark. If all goes well there should be good signs of healing at that point.

Good luck!
