ok you thoracic sufferers, heres my result..

I posted a few months ago about pain and a "bulg" in my back. Well, after visiting an OrthoSurg and FINALLY having an MRI, properly diagniosed with "Subacute severe compression fracture(deformity) at the T 11..90% of the right antiorial body". There you go. Originally misdiagnosed 3 times as a "back sprain". F that! I see my ortho in 5 days. Will go through kyphoplasty for sure. Go for it Doc. Pain in constant and excruciciating. And I had my child 13 hrs. in labor with NO pain relief, natural,... this pain equals that. I look forward to the 19th. God bless you all. Im a tough cookie, but NEVER had to deal with this.


  • Please research this fully before having surgery.

    The docs are playing with your central nervous system.

    Ask if they can guarantee a pain free future or if the pain may get worse. They don't usuually operate for pain alone. I know it is exceptionally like no other pain - but just make sure they can make ot better. They don't kmow much about the central nervous system, still learning - it's so complex.
