My son was in a car accident and "fractured his iliac bone in the region of his SI joint" and also suffered
a dislocated hip. At the time of his hospitalization, we were never told that he had fractured an area
of his pelvis; we only recently found it out by chance. Anyway, I can't seem to get his orthopaedic dr to
return any of my calls--all I am trying to find out is if the treatment for his hip (non-weight bearing for 6 weeks)
is sufficient for his fracture, or if he should be following further restrictions.
Any insight, etc. would BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
