My daughter broke her left femur above the knee on July 4, 2014. Rather than put a rod down her femure, the doctor put in two pins. One from her knee area going up into the break and one from her thigh area going down into the break.
This break happened in Northern Maine on vacation, we live in GA, the doctor in GA says he normally does not see a femur pinned this way but feels that the pins probably will not hamper her movement.
My concern is that in bending her knee the pins will poke her muscle tissue and could cause problems. Does anyone have experience with a femur being pinned this way, and will therapy help or hurt her??
