Re: Femur Questions

I had the same procedure 3 years ago and still have the hardware in today.
However, the size of the rod going up the femur causes my muscle rub across it feeling like someone frogged me anytime I run or even walk for about a mile. Doctor said anytime I have to have any surgery,even dental work, I would have to be pre-medicated (antibiotics)

I am not a doctor but would suggest removal.

The medical grade mineral oil released from the gel onto the skin also helps to soften dry skin and to reduce scar tissue by improving the mobility and elasticity of the skin after scarring.
