Hi. I am wondering if anyone else has had a lumbar wedge fracture. I fractured L1 in Feb after a fall (I am 27 and do not have ostoeperosis. I am still off work 5 months later. I use a TENS, take a variety of painkillers and am also having craniosacral therapy. My last X-ray showed slight deterioration and I am now awaiting MRI results next week. I wear a brace, though now thankfully only when out of the house. My consultant mentioned possible surgery, injecting bone cement to fill out the fracture, pending MRI results/depending on pain levels.
If anyone has similar experiences I would love to hear how long it was before pain reduced/stopped/you returned to work etc. Thanks.
