broken femur

I was in a car accident, and wanted to know how long should recovery take for a broken femur. I have a rod in my leg and the femur break was high, where it is the thickest. I had surgery in November but still have a bad limp and still use a cane.

    I had my surgery on January 3, 2019 after falling from a ladder while taking down Christmas decorations. I started walking two weeks ago and went back to work last week. I believe being positive has been key to my recovery. I am interested in following your progress as your injury happened two months before mine. I also shattered my wrist, had two tears in my pelvic area and a torn shoulder scapula. My limp is noticed without the cane but not with my cane.
