How long does a broken pelvis take to heal?

Ok now for a real answer. 8 weeks to a yr. How bad is the break. If it is a fracture it won't be as long, clean break will be longer. You will need to go to therapy after wards to strengthen your muscles back to par. Don't do any lifting or twisting you may make the break worse.

*wince* poor you or whoever it is. That'll take months to heal..

Depends on your age and if it is a pathologic fracture or not. An eldery person who breaks their hip because of osteoporosis has a very difficult time. One third recover. One third become confined to a wheelchair and one third don't survive.

For a healthy person, depending on how bad it is, it could take months to recover. One thing that is overwhelmingly important is that you do your rehab. A person who does their rehab will likely fully recover. But a person who does not, might not recover.

My next door neighbor is a good example. About 20 years ago, he was pulled off balance by this huge dog he owned. Falling on a rock that was jutting out (he was in the woods), he shattered his hip. He healed, but he did not do any of his rehab. He became confined to a wheelchair. He spent 15 years confined to that wheelchair. About 5 years ago, he went in for some surgery and this time, did the damn rehab. Now, he is walking.

15 years in a wheelchair because he was too lazy to do his rehab. Don't let that be you.

As long as it takes. I am not trying to be funny. A doctor can give you an estimate, but each individual heals at their own rate. I remember once after an operation, a doctor at the hospital told me that I would take two weeks to heal. I went to my own doctor two weeks later and he was surprised to see that I had healed so well and that it should have taken six weeks. I told him what the doctor at the hospital told me and so I just healed. My doctor that he was going to start telling his patients that they would heal faster - that it's often mind over matter.

6 weeks - 3 months depending on how bad. Could even be longer.

6 weeks, could be longer depending on how old you are, also bone density and whether the victim had bone diseases such as oesteopirosis (brittle bones) and other factors related to that.

Having a fractured pelvis all depends on alot off things really,age,fracture site,surgery etc.The healing process can take along time thou,especially if theres no surgery required,also having to lye still for mths too.But if surgery is required the process off healing is alot quicker normally about 3-6mths thats if there is no complications.
