Hi everyone. So I midshaft fractured my right femur in a motorcycle accident on the 4th of July and got a rod put in. Everything has been going great but a few days ago I started getting this horrible pain in my right glute where the stitches are and where the rod went in. At first I thought it was a cramp but I'm started to doubt that. At this stage I've noticed that it only occurs while sitting and while upright and walking around I don't have any issues. While sitting as long as I twist my leg inward (the foot wants to flop outward naturally right now for some reason) the pain reduces.
I'm fearful at this time of an injection or abscess. Has anyone experienced anything similar to this? I can't get a follow up with my dr until mid August.
