    Anyone suffer a broken pelvis?

    Not me, my wife, crashed hard on her side.

    Anyone go through this?

    What's the prognosis?

    Ow! My sister broke hers, at the sit-bone. 6 weeks off the bike. That was a few years ago, she hasn't had any ongoing problems. Hope your wife heals up quick.

    Sorry to hear about your wife Mongo. I hope she heals quickly and completely.

    I have no experience with broken hips, but it sounds painful.

    Thanks.

    Luckily it wasn't the hip, that would have meant surgery. Pelvis is less serious but very painful.

    Those vary a lot.

    I ride with a guy who had someone go down in front, he hit them and flipped over landing on butt/ sit bones. Cracked pelvis in 4-5 places in the front, weird guess the force traveled through the pelvis. Hospital like 4-5 days. Able to get in wheelchair about 2 weeks later. Hopes to return to work this week, about 3 weeks post accident. Lots of pain when he tries to move. He hopes he can ride in 3 months ... but that is probably optimistic. Hope your wife is better than that.

    Thanks.

    She has two fractures, been in hospital for three days now and still can't get out of bed on her own.

    Damn. Not good. Hope she gets better soon.

    Was that at Monday PIR? I think I saw the remnants of that crash as I was racing in the 1/2/3 field.
