Hi my spine health family
Iv had several spine issues 3 years I had a burst fracture of L2. About a year ago my MRI report listed I had a compression fracture at T11 I saw that before my fusion a of L1 L2 L3 I spoke to my surgeon he said it's nothing for me to worry about it and it's not causing your pain. Iv had many X-ray's since checking to see if the hardware is in place ETC.. All the reports never listed the compression fracture only the MRI had. Recently, I'm still in a great deal of pain and have been complaining of upper right sided pain I went back to my doctor about a month ago I had X-ray's once again and he said everything looks good. At the hospital where I go for treatment I have access to my chart on-line. I looked up my recent X-ray and there it was!
LUMBOSACRAL SPINE WITH LATERAL FLEXION-EXTENSION VIEWS
There is again noted pedicle screw instrumentation from L1 to L3 with posterior decompression at L1-2 related to previous L2 burst fracture.
No significant motion abnormality is identified.
There is also evidence of a previous compression fracture of T11.
I'm going for a second opinion at the Henry Ford Centre at the end of March
What are your thoughts?
