I'm 37 year old male. I was injured in auto accident. My femur was pushed up through my pelvis and blew out my right hip. I was life flighted to a trauma unit. It was also 24hrs. later before they pulled my leg back into place and placed in traction. By waiting, the sciatica nerve was pinched off without any circulation. I have no feeling in my lower extremities. Is there any new type of surgery that can repair this damage.

I have had trouble with my sciatic nerve for years to the point where I once had paralysis in my right leg for an entire week. Since I was a child I have had a lot of pain in my calfs and ankles when I exercise or just take a long walk. Can this have anything to do with the sciatic nerve? My doctor thinks I might have Fibromialgia. I would love to know what this is.
lots of questions- any answers. i'm a 36 y.o. male, injured while volunteering as a Medic/FireFighter at 29 y.o. Daily (often extreme) pain continues after multiple surgeries, etc, etc. How about an online support group? Dating for difficult-to-see and understand disabilities? I would still like to help others; maybe myself, too, while we're at it. ANY SUGGESTIONS? ANSWERS? IDEAS?
