Will my mother be able to walk after a closed reduction surgery?
Q: My mother is 53 years old. She had a surgery on her thigh bone fracture, which is affected with polio. Now she is undergoing physiotherapy and is able to walk with a walker. How much time would she require for recovery? The surgery was closed reduction. They have inserted a rod and connected with screws. Will it be a problem for her further?
A:Your mother will be able to walk after closed reduction. Initially she may find weakness, but muscle power in leg muscle will not reduce further. Whatever way she was walking earlier to her operation, will walk same way.
