Broken Femur

Postby mystergee » Jan 31st, 2013, 10:09 pm

Hey girls and guys. Long story short, broke my left femur in about 8 different places last Thursday. Had surgery that night and a rod was installed. Just got home yesterday. Any suggestions for recovering? I'm doing leg and breathing excercises. I can't stand up without almost passing out. It's a BAD break. Maybe you or someone you know haas suffered this?

So sorry , must be miserable. You must have got all of your recovery info before you left the hospital. If not, call the hospital and the ward you were on. If they don't have it, call the surgeon. With that type of surgery, you are sent home with a bunch of papers telling you what you can't and must do. You should also have a home nurse visit you and eventually a home physiotherapist. Someone must be looking after you, so get them to do this. Meanwhile watch what you do physically so that you don't do any more permanent damage. good luck

Thanks for the help everyone. It is quite the break, but things are starting to improve :)
