Broken Leg

#1
On Monday I was involved in a Road Traffic Collision and suffered a double open fracture of the femur (broken leg). After having the bones realigned and an operation to “Pin,” the bones together, my leg has been put in a cast and I was allowed to return home, in a wheelchair. I am going to see the Orthopaedic(-?) doctor next week but have been advised that my leg will be in a cast for ten weeks and I can expect to have about three months worth of appointments with a Physiotherapist.

I was wondering if anyone else had suffered from a broken leg in the past. If so, how long was it before you could start training again and how much fitness did you loose?
