 Femur woes
Oddjob    10:53am Apr 25 2019

So had a distal comminuted femur break in mid December when offroading in Spain, operated with internal plate and screws, so now 4 1/2 months in. Last x ray showed non-union and consultant siad you may need another plate and possibly a graft...anyone had a similar experience ?
Got a few questions -
1. Any of you had a graft and even splints with wire ? how was the recovery?
2. How long did it take you to get back to sports/walking etc ?
3. Ive had muscle pain in thigh nearly every day...is this normal ?
4. Can you get back to cycling and distance walking after such an op ?
5. The injury takes a toll on us mentally...how did you cope ?
6. do you take long term meds, or did you manage to get off them ?
