Have you suffered a broken or shattered bone?
Although broken bones and fractures are relatively common, they can be extremely painful and uncomfortable injuries to suffer. When they first occur, sufferers can be in a serious amount of pain and often require emergency treatment from a paramedic or medical professional. They may find it hard to move the affected area, and may need to be stretchered to a waiting ambulance or air ambulance in order to obtain further treatment.
However, once pain medication has been administered and the bone has been reset, the pain can lessen. Although the recovery time can be weeks or even months, sufferers often find that they can be relatively comfortable providing they are given the right medication. As bones will repair themselves, people often find that after a few weeks or months, the injury has healed sufficiently and they suffer no further complications.
Although a clean break or fracture can be relatively easy to fix, a shattered bone can require more treatment. If the bone has shattered quite dramatically, it can be impossible to repair the damage and doctors may have to operate. Although they will attempt to repair what is there, in some cases people may require metal plates or pins to hold the bones together in order to allow them to repair properly.
Due to this, people who suffer shattered bones can find that it takes longer to recover, and that the treatment can be somewhat more painful.
