 Re: Waiting to see orthopedic dr
SMM    10:19pm Jan 12 2019

Hi MD,

I am really sorry to hear this. At the very least, the ER should have been much clearer in communicating about the issues you raise. Yes, some fractures do not need immediate surgery, or perhaps no invasive surgery is at all needed?. I would assume, but I don't know, that if you experienced an open fracture you would be admitted to hospital immediately? And even if surgery might be needed, issues relating to swelling or nerve injury might delay any operations. Did the ER say the x-rays showed that attention by an orthopedic specialist could in fact wait? How is pain management? Hope you are coping.

Best wishes,
Matt
