    Generally, when you have broken your femur bone, it will take anywhere from 3 to 6 months for your leg to heal. However, this can take longer depending on your age and how bad the break was.

The long-term issues may include weakness in your hamstring, You may also be walking and standing, and intermittent pain.

    When you break your femur, your muscles in the joint also become damaged. To help with relieving the pain, it’s a good idea to rest it, put ice on it, put a compression on it, and elevate it. Ice helps with reducing the swelling and helps with reducing the pain as well. Elevating the knee will also help with reducing swelling. You can elevate the knee by putting a couple of pillows beneath it.

    Following your surgery, you’ll be on crutches for at least 2 to 4 months. In general, you’re going to be using two crutches during the first four weeks, after which you will use one crutch. After three months have passed, generally you can go on to use a cane instead. But make sure that you are following your doctor’s orders and doing what he or she tells you to do. This will help you to make sure that you are healing the best and that you are back on your feet.
