No: If she doesn't have complete healing of her femur, without prior authorization from her surgeon, it is not recommended to bear weight fully. Please see her surgeon for more details depending on her condition and status of weight bearing. Good luck.

Femur: The first right thing to do is consult with her surgeon . That doc is the one to give clearance on everything . It is not just the foot bearing full weight - the leg bears weight , too !
