Mommy Wants Vodka Felt Her Femur Just Like, Shatter


Aunt Becky, broke her hip or something, has now provided a timeline and explanation of sorts for her bizarre injuries.

Aunt Becky claims she “felt” her femur “fracture” while she was just “standing up, talking to a friend”. When someone asked how doctors didn’t see this injury, Becky replied:

They x-rayed it both times and saw nothing. I was sent home saying it was a bone bruise and a script for pain meds.

She then says she “went to inpatient rehab for PT and OT” on September 28, and by October 6 said “I am going home. I cannot wait.” Later that same day she said she’ll “be recovering from this a long…time”, though after another x-ray yesterday she reports “Turns out? My femur is working hard to get this b**** off her walker/wheelchair and back to kicking ass and takings [sic]“.

That’s not how any of this works gif here.

    Unless she has some sort of very advanced brittle bone disease, her femur did not 'shatter' while she was 'just standing'. If she does have some sort of very advanced brittle bone disease that causes her bones to spontaneously combust, she needs to still be in the hospital.

    I feel that perhaps neither of these things are reality based.

      Not supporting this blogger...don't follow her. But if you have older parents (moms) and they take fosamax, you should be aware that this actually can happen. MIL was treated for back pain, leg pain, nothing helped until the day her leg actually shattered and she fell. She had to fight with doctors that she was of sound mind, and did not fall and break her leg, her leg broke and she fell. And then it happened to the other one 11 months later. No sign other than pain...didn't not show up on xrays. She was walking a mile a day still at that point but with pain. Just be aware if you have a loved on that takes fosamax and they complain of leg/back/hip pain. For her, two major surgeries, much metal, 2 very long rehabs later and she is back to walking her mile a day, but she is a fighter. Awareness before could have really helped. The second break came with no warnings.

    The thought of feeling a femur fracture makes me want to vomit.

    Also, my brother was in the hospital after a car accident and they kept saying his back pain was due to deep bruising. Turns out they were wrong and a few of his vertebrae were broken.

    tl;dr Sometimes doctors are wrong and this could happen, but probably her vodka consumption contributed to her weak bones.

      I had that happen when I fell out of a bunk bed. They x rayed at the ER and claimed no vertebrae were broken, but turns out I had three fractured lumbar vertebrae. It happens. But vertebrae are significantly smaller than, ya know, a femur.

        Yeeeeea, a shattered femur would be...apparent. Hell, even a fracture would be obvious. It's not a bone with lots of ridges or places to hide a fracture. If it was broken, it would show up. This is fishy.

          Yeah that, and the whole "able to walk" thing.

          Actually, I want to spew at the thought of someone trying to mobilise on a shattered femur All I can picture is those old toys where there's a little animal on a base and, when you press something underneath, the animal collapses.

          Ooh, here's one:

            Yeah, there's the walking thing. With those fractures I had I could only walk with my torso bent at a 90 degree angle to my legs and I was in agony. With a fractured femur she shouldn't have been standing.

              My mom (a military veteran who has given birth twice without any pain meds, been impaled through the leg by a tree branch, and broken her ribs, arm, ankle, etc. over the course of her life because she's one of those people who just never knows when to quit or back down from a challenge) fractured her femur a few years ago and told me after her surgery that, even with the pain killers, it was the worst pain that she has ever felt in her entire life. I can't even imagine how this blogger could be standing to begin with after so many days of pain let alone casually standing and talking to a friend as she seems to imply. Maybe there's more to the story, but the details here are so sketchy.

        • sonotamused

          I am willing to give her she has a hairline fracture (which wouldn't show up) and then she just went straight off the line and into crazy land and spun the story out of control. Perhaps in the hope people will throw her money and/or pain drugs.

      Yup, just anecdotally it seems like ER doctors miss fractures fairly often. My son broke his leg and was sent home with instructions to see our doc if it still hurt in a week. A week later, we brought my son and his x-ray in and our doctor took one look at it and sent him on to an ortho. It was a buckle fracture so not super obvious even though it was on a long bone.

      Two years later, my daughter fell and went to a different ER, they x-rayed her elbow and said she was fine. They called us a few days later frantic to get us back because they had been wrong and another ortho caught it while reviewing all of the files.

      Also, could she be using the word fracture as a noun? Like she could feel pain even though she was just standing there? Not that she felt it breaking...I don't know, that's the only thing that made sense to me (unless she's just crazy, I know nothing about this woman other than front page stuff).

      You know, there are doctors and researchers reading here, thinking "Plutonium! Why hasn't anybody thought of that before? Yeah, titanium is the only substance that bonds with bone and isn't rejected by the body, but plutonium could sent the patient shooting back through time to when the injury hadn't even happened."

      You heard it first here.

    My dad fractured his femur while walking. He'd had a tumor scraped off of it and then it had been irradiated. The fracture was STILL not bad enough to warrant any treatment. He did get major badass points from his doctors though once he finally mentioned it after about six months.

    Oh Aunt Becky, your story sounds a lot like the ones an acquaintance would share. They too apparently acquired devastating injuries during the most mundane of activities, were seen by scores of emergency dept. consultants who had apparently said things like "Your fine, just a bit of osteoporosis in your stomach" or "No breaks in that bone, It's just a slight bend".

    The crucial difference is that I'm talking about somebody who was cognitively impaired due to a seizure disorder, suffered from schizophrenia, and was inordinately fond of "wobbly eggs", aka temazepam. What's your f**king excuse?

    Her story makes about as much sense as these here gifs:
