How are you coping with a broken leg in Hutton-Le-Hole?
Although suffering a broken bone is relatively common, it can be extremely painful and uncomfortable for the sufferer. Whilst a simple or clean break can be relatively easy to fix, if you’ve suffered multiple breaks or the bone has shattered, you may require more invasive treatment, such as surgery.
Often, if a bone is badly broken or shattered, surgeons will place metal pins around the affected area in order to hold the bone in place which will allow the patient to recover. However, the recovery process can be relatively slow and once the bone has healed, patients may have to undergo physiotherapy in order to strengthen the muscle in the affected area.
In addition to the pain that a broken leg or broken bone can cause, the affect that it can have on a person’s mobility can be extremely frustrating. As most people with a broken bone are required to wear a cast or protective boot for weeks or months, it can make it difficult to get around. Many sufferers need to use a wheelchair or crutches to get around so getting upstairs, even in one’s own home, can be difficult or even impossible for a time.
As people suffering with broken bones can find it hard to get around, they often have to stay in hospital longer than is medically necessary. Whilst they may feel able to return home, if they are unable to get around the house or they don’t have people at home to assist them, they may need to stay in a hospital or rehabilitation clinic for longer periods of time.
