Causes Of Delayed Walking Therapy With A Cane In Patients With Fractures?
Doctor, I am 16 years old and fractured my femur on 12 February. The femur fracture that I experienced caused me to undergo iron surgery on February 14th. Now, I walk with the help of a cane. On the 14th day of May (doctor appointment) the doctor will confirm whether I can walk without a cane or not. My question is is there any chance that I will still not be able to walk without a cane on that day?
From the information you conveyed, your history of femur fracture, and the installation of a plate in the fracture area, generally it takes about 6-8 weeks to get a good connection to the broken bone, so when you are under control, the doctor will do physical examination as well as radiological examinations are required.
This examination will provide conclusions on muscle strength, fracture strength, and further treatment planning. If this recovery period has been running for about 2 months, then chances are you can practice removing the sticks you have been using so far. Because after all, it is necessary to recover your muscles and bones before they are fully used. If needed, the doctor can refer you to a medical rehabilitation doctor to have a good rehabilitation period.
However, if a risky condition is found, such as the bones cannot connect, or there is an infection, the doctor can delay walking.
And all of this needs to be confirmed directly by your doctor, so you will get information that suits your clinical condition.
Thus the information that can be conveyed, read also femur fracture.
