my mom is 86. she fell while dancing , and fractured her pelvis. she already had osteoporosis. she is now in a rehab center. she has aways been an active and positive person. i am worried because she is in so much pain. the staff at the rehab are not telling her too much. she has been the primary caregiver for my 90 yr old father , who has had several mini strokes. i am an nurse, however i could use some input, about the recovey time period and the length of time that the pain starts to subsibe. thank you, pat
Hi Chriswilliams and welcome to ehealth: In order to find out the correct answer to this, you should speak with your Orthopedist...You can also "Ask the Doctor" at the top of this page...Take your time in healing...What you do now, can affect how your body will be in years to come...
How long does the pain last with a fractured pelvis - specifically the pubis rami? My fracture is related to a fall, but not displaced. Also, how long will the complete recovery take and what precautions should I take. I currently limp and use a cane most of the time.
Hey I fractures my pelvis in 3 places after being in a highway rollover car accident. For the first three months I was paralized from the waist down due to the severity of the fractures and at firsth they said it would take about 4 months to heal. It's been 8 months since the accident and my pelvis, although it's begun to heal, isn't completely healed yet. My doctor said it would tAke a full year to heal:( The pain is a daily miserable thing but I've leArned how to walk again through physical therapy.
