Recommended Posts

Broke my right femur in mid june (no braces) and at 6 weeks doctor still said no weight bearing, ive been swimming, riding a recumbent bike, and playing the physio game. so anyways, once im weight bearing/walking, how long till im running, jumping, cutting, and of course, riding?

Took me 5 months before I rode and 1 year before I rode with no pain.

Mine still aches sometimes now.

I started riding my street bike after 5 1/2 weeks, and my dirt bike at 7 weeks. I was able to walk without crutches or cane at about 16 weeks.

My doc had me bearing some weight (30%) right away. Said that would be good for it, but to be very careful to not put too much weight on it too often and too early, or the plate could fatigue and break eventually.

Its been two and a half weeks on mine now and just went for my check up yesterday. My doc told me to start ptting a little weight on it when I wantto. It's nice having a killer sports doctor. But he also told me that he couldn't believe how good my leg looked yesterday and the healing process that has come in just 2 weeks. Do what you think feels good...
