I am so new to all this....seems like from looking around here that I will find alot of help here.

My name is Kim and I live in Baton Rouge, LA.

I was just told that I have a 7mm pars defect due to a car accident I had in Feb. I post in the lower back pain forum to try and get some help understanding what all this means.

In alot of pain and not sure where all this goes from here.

I hope to get to know all of you and chat.

Thanks for allowing me on to your board.

God bless!


  • I hope you're getting some meds and seeing a Pain Management Dr to help deal with this hopefully temporary pain. That must've been difficult to go through that accident. I hope you're on the mend. Take care. Charry
