Don't worry too much about the pain right now. I broke my femur on a bike, had the rod put in, had the rod taken out 14 months later and I am still riding fine. It took me a while (4-6 months) to get back to hundred percent but that was more because they did my surgeries through my knee. Which I am assuming they did for you also. Rehab properly and you'll as good as new. Now, I'm running 5ks and doing whatever I want. I'm just glad you are okay and nothing worse than a couple of broken bones.
