Dr. Crowe was able to repair my broken left femur. It was a very bad break. Previously, my doctor from the VA told me if I ever broke my leg that I would never walk and probably end up in a nursing home, bed ridden. I was told no pins or rods could be installed to prevent the leg from more damage or breaking.
The night I went to the ER, after my fall, I talked to my surgeon, Dr. Crowe. He assured me he could have me walking in approximately 4 weeks. I am now getting around with a cane, moving slow, but I’m moving including walking stairs! When I first get up after sitting or lying down for a while, I'm very stiff. After a short period of time, I'm moving around with very little pain. I just take my time and walk slowly. As of today, not much has changed, I still have swelling and some pain, but I am still getting around and doing things that I thought I would never be able to do any more, including living in my own home. Thanks to Dr. Crowe, I feel I have a future now and hope to continue my life independently. My plans are to never give up.
