Hip fracture
Wed Jan 24, 2018 10:53pm

First - is your disability because of the hip fracture? or is it a separate condition?

You had the hip repaired thru using a medical device to reduce the fracture. You still have the original thigh bone and hip joint. Have you had followup visits with the original orthopedic surgeon? Do the x-rays show bone healing? Can you tolerate physical therapy now after the bone has repaired itself? There are many questions that have to be answered before you try to move ahead.

If you are not getting the answers from your local orthopedic surgeon, you may have to seek help at a learning hospital orthopedic surgical unit.

I did have a partial revision of my hip done quite sometime ago (1994) at Stanford hospital by a specialist connected with that hospital. If you are not getting answers locally you might want to check there for their best surgeon.

I am somewhat dismayed by the minimal physical therapy- but it possible after checking with the doctors that more might be helpful?

Pain is a warning of a problem - I think you need to ask more questions of your medical people. or get new ones if the answers are unsatisfactory.
