YoungDaphI still have issues with my femur/tib/fib more than 2 years later but I also tore my Achilles and damaged my peroneal nerve so that contributes to the issues. I was walking at 6 weeks unassisted and skiing (without doc permission and very cautiously) at 2 1/2 months. Leave the rod in, take the screws out when it's healed. Those fuckers will kill in a ski boot and if there's one in the knee it hurts a ton to kneel on hard surfaces. Also really work on ankle mobility, you'll be blown away at how quickly that shit goes away when you don't use it.
I should have qualified!!! Daphne is definitely an exception, then again, she had a horrific injury involving lots of moving parts and might as well been thrown from a moving vehicle into a tree.
I didn't mean to come off as dismissive or downplaying of breaking bones, because it can be very gnarly and can have lifelong negative effects.
Like anything, it all exists on a spectrum, and given what you OP have told us, I'd venture that your outlook is pretty damn good.........unlike the fucking bad ass bionic lady up there ^ haha
