Broken Leg Recovery?


A broken leg can lead to a long recovery. The patient's primary care physician should be able to give him or her an estimated time of recovery. The severity of the break and the bone that breaks will affect how long the recovery time will be. Any leg fracture will result in a cast and physical therapy after the removal of the cast or directly after surgery. It is important that the patient completes physical therapy in order to regain full function of the leg.
