In brief: Fu X-ray

Varies in part on the type of femur fracture and whether or even if it was fixed and then finally how well it is healing.
Most femur fractures take 8-12 weeks to fully heal. But femur fractures come in a wide range. A femur shaft fracture that was treated with a rod I would let walk on a 6 weeks, a femoral neck fracture that has not yet healed I would not. You need follow up.
