Improving Bone Fracture Recovery via A Nanofibrous Scaffold

In about March of 2022, I broke my left femur and was rushed to the ER. The surgeon told me I was going to have an operation the next morning to fix the fracture. They were going to place a rod on the side to stabilize the two bones and from there, let the bone heal on its own. Post-surgery, they said the recovery time was looking like 2 weeks of limited movement, 1 month on crutches, 4 months before regular physical activity.
