I was in a car accident on July 9, 2017 and I broke my right femur. I was told it was a comminuted fracture and I was hospitalised for 10 days. The rod and screws weren't placed in the leg until 4 days after the accident. It's now December, almost 6 months after the accident and I am still unable to walk. I'm 19 years old and I was told it would be easier for me to heal because I'm young but there barely seems to be any progress. There's a little bone callus shown on the x-ray but not enough as the doctors would like. My leg is fine as it relates to flexibility, it can move in any direction without pain. I even tried putting weight on it(going against doctors orders) and i can walk, i just have a silly limp. I've tried everything to speed up the process such as eating the right food but nothing seems to work. I'm really hoping that I'm allowed to put weight on my leg at my next appointment.
