Hematoma sacral nerves can't get anyone to listen
     My 17 year old had motorcycle crash June 16. He has compression fracture to Thoracic 5678 and cord contusion. He is to see neuro-surgeon July 5.
  My son probably landed on tail bone. Where tail bone ends there is a approx 1 inch piece to the right. No ct or mri of Lumbar or lower area. x-ray of pelvic they doc. said was to much gas to see. (White circular area in tail bone area).
Question: Sunday June 24, he told me his right buttock felt weird..
I dismissed. Later he showed me fluid approx. 5x5 filled area under skin, that when touched slides up to lower mid back. When he lays on side fluid goes oblong. This fluid is approx. guessing...over sacral nerve area...or sciatic nerve. He has sharp pain that randomly shoots down legs and may have lossed some sensation feet. Balance is off and when he walks he doesnt lift one of his feet completely.
Is this a concern (hematoma)?  Does this need to be acted on asap...or do we wait for July 5 appt.
  Family doc. didn't even look at Hematoma...said it would absorb into body...
Worried, Mom
