I fractured L2-L5 and got spondo as a result of being thrown by my horse. It has been almost 2 weeks since the accident. I have a brace and am trying to avoid the drugs although I do have flexeril, dilauded and vicodin for pain. I've developed EXTREME pain down the back of my left leg. It is especially painful in the glute and calf area. It gets so bad I can't put any weight on the left leg. Any idea why this is happening? I don't know if the docs can do anything about it but it sucks!
