I few posts ago I talked about the pain I was having but now I am curious to the opinions of how long it takes for a sacral stress fracture to heal.
The fracture is on the right side of S3. I was injected with cortisone in that general area (in May of 09) which I have heard can prolong healing but what is the standard healing time for a stress fracture in this area? It has been almost one year and I have stopped all athletic activity in hopes of it healing. Any ideas?
Secondly I am curious to know if one advil (200mg ibuprofen) could possibly numb the pain of a stress fracture? I have to take one advil every 3.5 hours to make it through the day with lots of icing and my therapist thinks since advil is helping then something is causing inflammation and it is not related to the stress fracture, I am skeptical. But nonetheless going for an SI joint cortisone injection in 2 days, pray for me.
