My husband got up for the bathroom and fell coming back to bed. I could not get him up and had to call 911. They got him to er and unfortunately he both broke and dislocated his shoulder. And hit his head too. They could not manipulate his shoulder back in place and had to cut his shoulder to get it back in place. Unfortunately he keeps trying to move his shoulder to see if it works which is the wrong thing to do

I had a fracture dislocation of my right shoulder / humerus from a fall ski racing. Fortunately the ER Doc could manipulate back into place. After some time and PT, it is better than before.

Just a note that things may turn out well:)

Cheers

He was actually very lucky. My wife fell like that and smashed her shoulder in several places. She needed total shoulder replacement. She had to wait for weeks to get the surgery because we were evacuated due to hurricane Irma and the hospitals were closed for weeks due to no power then a boil water notice. She was lucky to regain most of the use of her left arm. Hope your husband makes a 100% recovery!

So sorry to hear doubt his fall. Wishing him a speedy recovery, and strongly recommending he take his PT seriously when the time comes, to ensure maximum use of his shoulder down the road!

Yikes! How scary--for both you *and* him, and I am sure the dementia will only complicate the recovery.
*big hugs all around*
