Hi Lizm

Have you discussed this issue with your granddaughter's physician? Weight gain after a pelvic fracture could just be from inactivity, but there is always a possibility of complications. I would bring this to the treating physician's attention and see what he or she thinks about it.

Thank you for writing.
