Still limping &amp  sore him 1 year after right femur fracture
i sustained a comminuted degmental right femur fracture in an acciden 1 year ago. An intra-medullary nail was inserted, but with the extent of the injury, the femur was internally fixated in internal rotation. New screws were inserted (lower leg only) and femur derotated. I have a slight limp with my right leg swinging in to the left when I walk, still feel soreness in my hip when going up stairs or walking short distances and can''t bend my right leg in, like when you sit cross legged or put you right leg on your right knee. It has been 1 year, should I not have recovered fully by now?
