Greetings to you!

I am Tejaswini from India, one of my friend referred your website.

I require your help regarding my physical condition. Me (Tejaswini 26 years old female) met with an accident on November 27th, 2011. A truck has been ran over me when I was a pillion in a two wheeler, I got severe multiple fracture on my right pelvis and few other life threatening complications and I am hospitalized about 45 - 50 days and now I am perfect with all my organs working fine, the only problem now is my bones needs to be fixed. I am still bed ridden.

When we consulted doctors they said that I has to undergo multiple surgery and it might take even a year to complete all the surgeries, they also told us that even after surgery I will have limp problem for life. And this is the maximum they can do it seems

I would like to know whether you can help me to come out of limping after all the surgeries over? Can I able to come back to my normal life, just as before. whether can I able to play, run and jump ?

your advice please

Hello Tejaswini,
Welcome to the EmpowHER site. I am so sorry to hear about your tragic accident. You have undergone so much and yet sound like you have a positive attitude and determination to regain a normal life again.

I wish I could tell you that you will be able to do all the physical activities that you did before the accident, but I cannot.

If your physicians in India say that you will still limp following multiple surgeries, then that is what you can expect.

I know that here, in the United States, there are surgeons who are performing remarkable surgery. Intensive physical therapy can restore patients to amazing levels of function.

I would ask your physicians if intensive physical therapy would help you minimize any limp following the completion of the planned surgeries.
