How can I tell the difference of the pain I am having between the T-12 Vertebrae, and the surgery pain from a fusion on my L3/4, L 4/5, which I had June 29 of this year? I had a fractured T12 in Nov. of 2009, that took me out of work until now. My pain currently is in the mid-back, just below the bra line, all the way across the back. Thank you for any help you can give. My T-12 fracture is work comp, and the lower lumbar fusion is from 2 ruptured discs.
