Get a private physio, or speak to the PTI's back at P-Coy. They'll be able to suggest something for you, probably bikes and rowing, that kind of thing. Good luck with your recovery!

I had a hairline fracture in my right femur, and a farked hip joint when I was younger. It took a few months traction, about 6 months in a cast, then lots of physio afterwards to get my leg to move again afterwards.

Phys?? I bought a remote control car :)
