Hi all, i am writing on behalf of my grandfather who is 78 years of age and a very healthy, strong and fit person. Approximately 1 year ago he suffered a fractured right fremus from a roof fall. It was fractured competely in six places and require a steel rod inserted into the pieces in order for it to regain shape. I am aware due to his age the recovery has taken longer than a younger person. The recovery was going well until he received some extra physio treatment which has possible triggered some nerves and he is in constant pain and i unable to sleep along with this his foot seems to go numb. When walking the pain seems to subside but otherwise it is unbearable. Would anybody please be able to recommend something or possibly help me understand what the problem is. This would be much appreciated. Thank you

  • all I can say is fractures very very often cause cronic pain. usualy artheritis. sorry to say but its kinda normal. if its that bad though id get him checked out again by a doc. cause it might be healing wrong. Cronic pain is normal but if its as bad as you say.....and its healed then maybe it healed wrong or something id go back for more xrays. and for sure talk to his doctor about it
