    Can you fracture your pelvis and not realise it ?

    I had a car accident three years ago, it hit me resulting in a side impact. My car and seat got twisted going to the offside of my car, I took my seatbelt off as it hit me and jumped into the passenger seat. Everyone said they were amazed I was alive let alone walking with sticks.

    I wouldnt think mum fractured hers and she couldnt walk ...she was in hospital for 8 weeks,however she was 87 so maybe age may have a contributory factor in IF it is noticable or not,but given the position of the pelvis  I would doubt it very much if a fracture could be unnoticable.

    if you point at pelvic bone fracture owing to the accident only scans can fix. normally obesity as it creates many problems particularly with pelvic set up , minor fractures are mistaken for muscular or nervous strains leading to complications
