I was in a car wreck Feb 24th. Was rear ended while stopped at a red light, the kid was going 40 to 45 mph. I saw it coming and tensed and stood on brake. I had MRI last week and got the results yesterday. They say that my L5 S1 has a 7mm pars defect. And that it is being supported only by ligiments. How serious is this?
I started having pretty bad lower back and right hip pain 2 days after wreck. My hands starting going numb for no apparent reason and got alot of numbness in my feet. And my left calf just starts cramping out of no where, and I can not sleep at night because I can not get comfortable. I am suppose to see ortho surgeon next week. Please help me understand this. What does all this mean. I am new to board and have no idea what I am facing.
Thanks in advance for any help.
