:H hi everybody!
i am a 34 yr old male and was happily into a family tour at snow clad hills where i fell off a berserk horse b4 20 days.
inspite of terrible back pain, local orthos gave pain killers and ruled out any serious injury. after flying back, i resumed work on diclofenac.
things got worse, went to ortho, got x rayed and was shocked to detect a T11 compression fracture (after 12 days of accident)! now i hv been with a 'Taylor's brace' and pain killers for a week. just happened to go thru this site and decided to join in.
i hv been asked to limit mobility for 4 weeks and there arent any nerve problems
)) docs are as busy as they are and dont pass on much except treatment...can anybody share what can be expected later on? can there be long term pain? ***does the T11 segment regain original shape or just consolidate in the compressed state??***
