I was walking my 130 lb. German Shepherd when he took off after a dog and threw me to the concrete. Result I have three broken ribs pulled groin and a fractured pelvis. This happened around 15 July. My growing is healed and my ribs are getting better. My question is how long before I can put weight on the fractured pelvis. It is still bothering me a lot and very painful. Fracture is right at the bottom of my butt and it hurts down my leg when I try to walk. My doctor tells me it will heal itself in about nine weeks from the date of the injury. I was in a wheelchair but now I'm trying to use a walker. I just don't want to cause additional problems if I'm not supposed to put weight on it. Can't get a straight answer out of my doctor other then it will heal itself after nine weeks from the injury.
