If the person who breaks a hip is young and healthy, the breaking of the hip will not cause death to occur, however, when an elderly person with ill health or frail health breaks a hip, it causes them to become bedridden and they do not have the strength to get better. Often pneumonia will set in and that is what they die from.
I live in fear of breaking my hip. I've fallen down my stairs twice. Once was such a bad fall, by all rights I should have broken bones. But I was REAL lucky. I simply would not allow myself to be bedridden. I do spend a lot of my time in bed. Kind of why I got a laptop. But I also get up and around. I was hoping to walk a little this summer to get more exercise, but at the moment I have some pain issues that won't let me do that. But having almost died of double pneumonia one time, I'm more susceptible to it. And I plan on living into my 70s, despite my health issues. But I worry a lot about breaking a hip. I do.
