The Signs Of The Fracture Are Healed?
Good afternoon doctor … r nI have had a fracture in my thigh and have had surgery, it has been 5 months until now. R nI want to ask if I can walk without assistive devices. Because thank God my thighs never hurt at all. R nI even use moving around, I have no complaints. It’s just that the knee can only bend around 120 °. R nWhat do you think the signs of a fracture in the thigh bone have healed and can walk without any assistive devices? can see the pattern of fracture time after the accident. r nThank you in advance doctor.
Hello Jona Uno,
In general, fracture conditions can heal completely. Fracture of the femur (femur fracture) takes 3-6 months, depending on the shape of the fracture, its specific location, the condition of the tissue around the injured bone and patient compliance with therapy and doctor's instructions. The time needed can be even longer if the fracture of the thigh breaks through the skin and is experienced by an active smoker.
It is recommended that the benchmark used is the latest X-ray results so that you can see whether the fracture has healed completely or there is still a fracture line, even in certain conditions the fracture does not fuse properly. For that you should consult your orthopedic doctor again so that through the doctor's examination and the latest X-rays you can get the best advice regarding your condition.
so hopefully useful
