The pain is intense. You knew as soon as your motorcycle stopped that something was very wrong and that you were injured. You, or someone else at the accident scene, called an ambulance. At the hospital, X-rays were taken and a pelvic fracture was diagnosed. You know that you are lucky to be alive.
But, what should you expect next? What will your recovery be like? What will your future be like after your Green Bay motorcycle accident injury?
How to Recover From a Fractured Pelvis
Many factors will determine how you recover from a fractured pelvis after a biking crash; For example, your age, general health and the extent of other injuries may all factor into how well and how fast you heal.
Generally, there are two ways to recovery from a motorcycle accident fractured pelvis. You may:
- Require surgery.
Unstable fractures and fractures with a lot of bleeding may require surgery. The extent of the surgery and the outcome upon its conclusion varies among patients.
- Get by with non-invasive treatments.
A stable fracture may not require surgery but might require you to keep your weight off the affected bones from several months. You may need crutches, a walker or a wheelchair to move around.
You may also require pain medication, blood thinner medication, other prescription drugs, and physical therapy to recover from your injuries.
