I had a dynamic hip screw fitted 10 weeks ago. It's been pretty smooth sailing, complied with all restrictions and instructions given to me. Callus formation was seen at 6 weeks (fracture line still visible)
I'm allowed to weight bear 50%-75% on crutches at the moment. Next x-ray in 2 weeks.
Not had much pain or stiffness. I'm a bit worried because the last few days out of nowhere I have short stabbing pains across the top area of my thigh even when sitting.
I'm so worried about the blood supply and the risks of AVN. Does anyone have any advice or experiences to share about what sort of pain is normal on this journey?
I was with a physio for the first couple of weeks but have been left to get on with it myself now. I did ask them what sort of pain was normal but they told me a different answer every time! I'm thinking of ringing the fracture clinic for advice tomorrow if it continues or gets worse.
