Sedated with 0.15 ml buprenorphine and 0.15 ml Dexdomitor IM for pelvic rads. Displaced fracture of right ileum – multiple pieces, right acetabulum is crushed, significant collapse of the pelvic canal. Possible pubic and ischial fractures as well, but difficult to be sure due to stool in the colon that’s overlapping the pelvis, and open growth plates.
While sedated, MPLs palpated – grade 2/4 today.

3. Medial patellar luxation – R/O congenital vs. traumatic
Short-term prognosis: Poor. If pt regains anal tone and ability to urinate and defecate, pt may have long-term difficulty defecating due to collapse of pelvic canal. Will need right FHO.
1. Switch to Simbadol 0.3 ml SQ SID x10 days
2. Miralax 1/4 tsp in water BID x10 days
