i met with an accident on 17 nov 2007 and fractured both my femurs midshaft .i was operated both
femurs were nailed with interlocking nails and screws on both ends of femur for both legs .i was on bed for 3 months and started walking .doctor said my right femur was perfectly united but there was little gap in left leg. i waited for 1 year to heal but i was again operated to remove screw near my left knee becoz doctor thought that it is hampering my bone union on nov 15 2008
even recents xrays showed good callus formation but still i feel pain at fracture site and cant bear weight fully on my left leg
can u suggest what is the reason .IS IT NON UNION
If the doctor you are seeing now can not answer your question, I suggest getting a second opinion. My son broke his femur. He healed well, but does still have pain from time to time. He was told the likely culprit was scar tissue build up. He does martial arts still.
It make take more time for those bones to completely knit and you to feel no pain.
I had a bimaleolar fracture of my right ankle, with two plates and nine pins placed on 31 October, 1995. It *still* hurts me, even to this day.
You may want to see another orthopedic surgeon and/or have more imaging done (CT or MRI) to evaluate the bone and soft tissue healing.
Good luck, I hope you are free of pain soon.
agreed...get another opinion...is there any swelling? is there any redness? when was last xray? arthritis as well as scar tissue will cause pain and both femurs, goodness I am glad you can walk at all!! you did go through ALLLLLL the physcal therapy right?
! love to you!!!
