I would recommend that you get in touch with the Orthopaedic Surgeon who performed the operation to stabilize your pelvis. There are many concerns after surgery such as hardware pain or hardware migration, refracture, and if you have had a high degree of immobility and have not taken DVT prophylaxis, you may need to be evaluated for that as well. Don't wait to call and schedule an appointment.
