54 year old male.
I had a laminectomy/spinal decompression 18 months ago and recently suffered collaped L2 vertebra and compression fracture of L4. No reason has come forth as I do not have a bone density problem nor was I in an accident or fall.
While the vertebra is healing there is a large void where the fracture occured resulting in half of the top quarter of the vertebra being gone. Most of my problems are sitting as it feels like a knife going thru my lower back. Is there concern with the missing section of the vertebra long term?
