Dear Sistas
If the pelvis fracture did not injure your womb you may still have a baby - you don't have to have a normal birth, which could be difficult and you may need a ceasearian section. Severe injuries can cause pains for years afterwards and some nerve injuries can take up to 2 years to heal.
It sounds as if the nerve to the foot got injured and if it is a permanent lesion, I don't think there is much you can do about it. Painful joints usually react good to medication like Neurofen, Mypaid or Myprodol.
