Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Most nails ,rods are removable after fracture unites well and a reasonable time frame allowed for the bone to gain strength,more caution is needed for weight bearing bones. 10 years is more than required, You can contact a good orthopaedic surgeon
Next Steps
consult orthopaedic surgeon with old records and latest x ray of the affected part
