Dr. Cannada shares what a woman should do if the pain from her pelvic fracture does not dissipate.
If a woman has pain after a pelvic fracture she should first check with her orthopedic surgeon to ensure that the fracture is healed and that the pelvic alignment is acceptable. If the bone healing and fracture alignment is acceptable then she should talk to her gynecologist.
