I had a fall about 5 months ago and sustained a T12 burst fracture.
This was operated on and was stabilised with a titanium thingy.
What I'd like to know is the prognosis for pain.
At present, I am experiencing more pain in my lower back. The operation site isn't too painful.
At my 3 month check up back in March, the fracture had 70% healed.
The term that confuses me is 'neurological deficit'
The surgeons report said that I was making a good recovery and that there were no signs of any further neurological deficit.
Does this mean that I did experience Neurogical Deficit in the first place or not?
Sorry for the contrived questions, but I'm keen to know if and when the lower back pain will subside.
I am doing Physio.
