I was unable to walk for 6 months following a ski accident. Oh yes, and I broke my arm the day after when trying to use crutches. My friends rallied around — what a blessing. But it was not an easy experience, and I feel your pain.
Recently I had a hip replacement (not sure if it was related to the previous injury)— what a miracle. Not sure this is right for you but if it must be done, use the anterior approach and get a good surgeon and you may find that it is a blessing.
