How long does a broken hip take time to heal?

Hi I just took my blood pressure and it was 111/47. I recently broke my hip and they went back in washed out old blood I have. Drain tube in which is still draining alot after two days. They told me I could take the drain tube out tomorrow. I look at little pale. Should I be concerned?

Broken hip??
Details are not clear.
Severity of injury has to be really assessed.
Most commonly pelvic fractures are associated with pelvic vessel injuries- illiac arteries.
Associated with severe blood loss.
Needs pelvic ext fixation.
If drain out put is increasing and clinical signs if anemia then its really a worrying thing.
Please see your orthopedician immediately.
