Hi Iwas recently knocked off a motorbike and sustained a compressed fracture T11, I have had a brace on for alsmost 4 months, surgeon still not happy with progress so I am waiting to go for an MRI scan with a view to Kyphoplasty.

In the meantime.........thanks to a very diligent G.P. who sent me for a bone density scan...I have also been diagnosed with Osteoporosis T -2.9

I am by nature a very positive person, and very independant......but all this has hit me hard and I'm struggling with being so 'imobile'....

I'm due to get married next May 2010 and i'm concentrating on that, but can't help worrying it's all going to go pear shaped if I need surgery.........now i'm babbling !!!LOL ,,,
