Hi my name is Jewell and I had a car accident in which I was stuck in the drivers side door by an SUV.
Approx 3 months ago I fractured my pelvis in several places, lacerated my spleen broke some ribs and sustained a concussion. How long does it take until you stop experiencing pain? I can stand a certain amount but this goes beyond that. My orthopedic Doc has discharged me from home PT, and wants me to start aqua therapy. I look forward to the aqua therapy however, I am still having other problems that have not been addressed. Because of my extensive pelvic fractures no one is paying attention to me when I tell them that my ROM involving my neck is awful and hurting. I can not turn my head all the way to the right. The Docs were checking for DVT, they seemed so sure I was developing a clot because of the severe amount of swelling in my legs. At one point I could not lift my leg it was so heavy because of the edema. I also have a serious loss of sensation in my calf and foot and would you believe even the bottom of my foot. I was walking in small steps and was trying to make larger strides (part of my PT) and I almost fell because my right foot tripped over my left. I think it was because my left foot is so numb. Can you help me? If I only had something to base what I was going through on. I wish I had a time period for healing. Sincerely Jewell
