Hi there, I got into a pretty bad incident and broke my right femur in Dec last year. My x-ray has been showing thin line of fracture all this while, even the latest I took yesterday. My doctor said that I can slowly go back to full weight bearing in 2 weeks time. However, he also said that I should not do any exercises like running or jumping for another 3 months.
Before this incident happened, I was an active runner so I got really depressed for not being able to run or hike. Now that my doc is saying I can do full weight bearing soon, I dont understand why I am not allowed to slowly go back running. My doc provided no further explanation other than that my fracture was pretty long and serious, so I should be cautious.
Has anyone got into this unfortunate event like me before? I would like to know how long you used to get back to running/hiking. I also wonder if my fracture is a case of delayed nonunion, but I dont feel pain when I walk without crutches. Actually what kinda pain would one feel when the bone isnt healed and they walk on it? I feel sore sometimes but not painful.
