Hi, new to the site. I sustained wedge fracture to L1 in Feb due to an accident. Did not have surgery at the time but still in pain and now may be offered sugery pending MRI results next week. Trying to find out more info on line but all very technical. Found mostly info on osteoperosis causing this type of fracture (I'm 27 and am otherwise overweight but well). I want some kind of time line of recovery - although I am slowly improving, 5 months on and wondering if and when the pain may stop?!
