broken femur

Hi,
I am a below knee amputee and 2 weeks ago while sking I fell and broke my femur at the top.it has been plated and screwed with a 115mm pin in the top.I have been told that I SHOULD BE ABLE TO TOUCH WEIGHT BEAR with my prothesis on for six weeks before puttung my full weight into my prothesis.The problem I have is that with my prothesis on it is rather painfull and if I knock my prosthetic foot it levrs the movemt right to the top of my femur.Is there other exercises I can do to get my mobility back.Since breaking my leg it is very difficult to lift it vertically.
hope you can help.
