18 months ago I fell down a flight of stairs, and fractured T8, which my first surgeon told me was very unusal to break that one. He tried Kyphoplasty, but it didn't help, would not recommend further surgery. I have an appointment to get a second opinion on further surgery. I cannot stand more than 10 minutes until the pain gets really bad. Have tried many pain relievers, but the only ones that help are in the narcotic field. I am taking a low dose of morphine when the pain gets really bad and I can't relieve it by lying down. Have been through physical therapy and a tens unit, which worked for a while. So I am seeking info/advice from anyone that has been thru the same thing I am going thru. Thanks.
