I was involved in a road traffic accident in early Jan and suffered a compound fracture of my pelvis, i fractured both pubic rami bilaterally. I also had a fracture dislocation of my left sacroiliac joint with fractures of my ileum and sacrum. I have had my pelvis internally fixed in the form of sacroiliac screws and for 14 weeks i had a pelvic external fixator. I was wheelchair bound for 4 months and learning to walk is a struggle. My fractures have healed but i have chronic lower back pain. Pain down my legs under my buttocks and into my pubic area. My left side is worse. I have seen a pain management doctor and like all the doctors i see they look at me with confusion!! I am awaiting some scans and other tests to be done but i wonder will this pain ever go away?? Or ease off?? Has anyone had the same problems as me? The doctors tell me i'm lucky to be alive. I take 600mg of Lyrica, 150mg of Efexor, 150mg of Arthrotec and up tp 400mg of Zydol SR (Tramadol hidrochloride) and I'm never without discomfort. I've just started using crutches since yesterday previous to that i used a zimmer frame. I'm making progress but its slow and painfull. Any advice i would welcome. Thank you in advance.
