PT after broken femur?

This is an off-beat question, I know, but I want to get it right: I'm writing a novel in which one of the characters has suffered multiple fractures in her right femur after an auto accident. She leaves the hospital after a couple of surgeries, with pins in her leg and a full hip-to-foot cast. What sort of physical therapy exercises would she be instructed to do for the remainder of her recovery?

I'm happy to go read more on wikipedia or do a google search or whatever, I just haven't the faintest idea of even what to search for. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
