1 Answer:

Hello Rina, thank you for the question.

Broken femur or pelvis is a fairly serious form of fracture. This is because the thighs and pelvis have large bones, large blood vessels, and important nerves. So the risk of bleeding, nerve damage, infection, or embolism becomes greater. Postoperatively, the doctor will give an estimate of bone healing within 3 months. But the number is certainly different for each individual, depending on the severity of the fracture, general conditions, nutritional intake, type of activity, and the presence or absence of the accompanying disease.

You should control the doctor who treats you to ask for the right exercise menu. In people without injuries, moderate intensity exercise such as brisk walking, is done at least 30 minutes each time, with a frequency of 3-5 times per week. In people with major bone injuries, of course, this menu can not necessarily be valid. You can try exercising using two crutches for 10-15 minutes, 1-2 times per week. Watch for pain and swelling after exercise. If so, then maybe your condition is not suitable for exercise. If not, then you can increase gradually, as long as there is no prohibition from the treating doctor. Regarding when the right time to release crutches, the doctor will assess your ability to stand and walk first. For now, make sure you don't force yourself during activities.

Hopefully this answer can help you. Regards.
