Wed Jan 24, 2018 12:42pm

i am a 63 year old disabled senior. on november 11th 2016 i fell backwards and broke my hip. dr. cahill of stockton ca alpine orthopeadics dis an ORIF.

i have had minimum PT due to pain and weakness. it has improved,but i still cannot put my weight on my left leg. i walk with a cane with a limp, and without a cane with a pronounced limp. sitting and resting is not painful, but when i try to walk and put weight on my left leg it hurts severely.

how long will it take for the pain to subside when i try to cross my legs or put weight on my leg in the situation i am in?
sincerely yours,
