Re: what happens if you do no surgery on broken hip
Your mother-in-law is a high risk patient for surgery, however, an orthopedic surgeon told us the only way to relieve pain from a broken hip is via surgery.
Your m-i-l realizes the high risk she is faced with undergoing surgery.
Doctors need to get her blood pressure down, 240 is in stroke territory.
Surgery will put loads of stress on her heart, lungs, and kidneys. In other words there is most likely only a 50/50 chance of survival.
I am not a medical professional, speaking from experience only.
