Broken Femur 5 weeks ago now, clean single break

Broke my femur 5 weeks ago now, clean single break , broken by my foot being caught at base of a tree on my snowboard, not going very fast, my own momentum wrapped me around tree and snapped femur approximately midway as a result, much like breaking a match with 3 fingers. Titanium rod was inserted by orthopedic surgeon.
My question is, is this a good or bad break, i.e. will I have a long or short recovery due to this type of break. I'm 55 years old, yet in good physical condition. Any insights would be greatly appreciated,
