Hi Reny,

Thank you for the question.

The elderly are more at risk of having broken bones due to decreased bone density. Depending on the location and type of fracture, as well as what the patient's general health condition is, a groin fracture in the elderly may require different treatment. This condition should be further evaluated by physical and radiological examinations (such as x-rays, CT scans) by a doctor or orthopedic surgeon. With regard to the condition of your grandfather who also experienced a collision on his head, it is also necessary to further examine the head. Worried, there is a serious head injury that also needs to be treated immediately, in addition to dealing with a broken thigh bone.

Frequently, the definitive treatment for femur fractures, in patients of all ages, is indeed done by surgery. This operation is carried out with the aim of reducing the fracture of the broken bone while fixing it so that it reunites well and quickly. If there are indeed medical indications that require it, there is no prohibition for the elderly to undergo fracture surgery. It's just that, if indeed your grandfather also has a history of diseases, such as heart problems, hypertension, diabetes, and so on, then the risk of surgery will certainly be greater. However, compared to the risks that might arise if the broken bone is not operated on, the risk of this surgery is far more preventable and controlled. A broken femur, if not treated immediately, can cause more severe tissue damage, massive bleeding, bone infections, and even death. Even if these broken bones can eventually fuse by themselves, then often bone pooling will require a very long time (nonunion) or imperfect integration (malunion).

The good, you entrust direct handling of the condition of your grandfather to the experts, namely doctors or orthopedic surgeons, yes .. With the competence and experience they have, surely doctors are more understanding of the treatment that needs to be done, for the good of your own grandfather.

Hope this helps ...
