You and/or your family should talk with your doctor about the best treatment plan for you. A pelvic fracture is a serious injury that may be complicated by injuries to other parts of your body. Treatment first focuses on stopping any internal or external bleeding caused by your accident, then on the diagnosis and treatment of both the pelvic fracture and any associated injuries.
Many people need surgery to repair their pelvic fractures or other injuries. Blood transfusions and antibiotics may be part of the early care. Early fracture stabilization, bedrest, and appropriate physical therapy and other rehabilitation care are very important to making a good recovery, which will usually take months.
If you are diagnosed with a pelvic fracture, follow your doctor's instructions.
