On 1/09 I fractured my sacrum by falling on my butt rollerblading. I have yet to have an exam as the urgent care physician handed me a script for 30 vicodin and sent me on my way. I did see an NP and he basically offereded more pain meds and said that it would heal without intervention in about a month.
I have shooting pains down my left leg to my knee and sometimes my foot. I have had a hard time passing bowels and often feel like I have to go, but cant. When I sit I feel like I am sitting on a softball and have a lot of rectal pressure. I already have a call into to see my primary care doc, but should I ask for an orthopod consult? I don't want to have chronic pain our bowel problems because I have had delayed care .... any advice welcomed.
