Femur fracture: The problem with femoral fractures is that they often heal too aggressively. The fracture induces a lot of calcium building, which frequently results in a femur on that side significantly longer than on the other side. The asymmetry can cause various symptoms. I would consult an orthopedist. There is a surgery for this, but only used for severe symptoms.
