Broken Femur. Leg to Long?

Recommended Posts

I broke my femur 3 weeks ago and had a rod put in it. Doc said I can't put any weight on it for at least 6 weeks. Looking at the xrays there is a decent gap between the bones where it broke. I was assumming that is cause a femur loses lots of bone during a break. as i am getting to straightening my leg i have been noticing it is a little longer. We measured it to be about 1/4" to 1/2" longer than my good leg. Should a be calling my Dr and asking him or will it fix itself when I start putting full weight on it. Any thoughts?
