Hip Fracture In The Elderly Aged 65 Years?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Osteoporosis is a common bone loss condition that usually occurs in elderly women, although it can also occur in men. This is because in women, there is a menopause phase after which women lose their reproductive hormones which previously also had the benefit of protecting bones. People with osteoporosis tend to be more prone to fractures, even with light exertion.
Regarding your question, the stick is actually a tool for dividing the body's weight into other objects. So that with the help of a stick, your mother's legs do not fully support her body weight, and thus will minimize further fractures.
But to be more certain, including how many more days your mother can recover, our advice to avoid misunderstandings is to ask the doctor who treats your mother for this condition. Because to answer that, it is necessary to do an examination of how severe the fracture is, how well he has recovered so far, how is his current walking ability and so on.
In addition, our advice is to give understanding to your mother because this restriction of movement is nothing but for her own health, and to avoid injury and help her recovery. Hope your mother gets well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
