Patient :My grandmother is 83 and cracked her femur. The doctor says they cant do much and she had a few days of physio and was discharged. She still has alot of pain in her pelvic area around the hip. Should they have put in plates or shrews or something? They say she must keep walking around even with the pain. Should we go for a second opinion?
