Broken Femur Rehab

Hi. I just recently broke my femur. From what I understand it was a break straight accross with some splintering on the end. It has been three weeks and I am ready to do exercises at home while I wait for my next orthopedic visit. I have been told no weight bearing because the splintered ends could shorten.
Anything can help. I am 27 and both work and school have been put on hold during this. I need to get back to a sustainable income.

Thank you Angela

The SiliposŪ proprietary gel pad is formulated with a medical grade mineral oil (USP) which gradually dissipates onto the skin to help reduce scar tissue after carpal tunnel surgery and to protect sensitive scar tissue against friction, abrasion, and pressure.
