Hi Everyone, I'm new here and have some things wrong I don't understand. I was hit from behind by a pallet at a local store this was loaded with canned goods. I never saw it coming I was standing still I remember screaming and going down almost to the floor but I have bad knees so I held onto my shopping cart and just ended up in a position of bracing for whatever had happened. To make this short I have NO history of back problems, my PA I see for my knees found the fractures and their called Spondelothis may be spelled wrong. The PA SAID BECAUSE OF MY HISTORY THIS WAS CAUSED BY ACCIDENT. He sent me to the back DR IN THE Ortho practice whom said I'd had these for years and they've not healed , how is that possible? Will they never heal I'm in so much pain and was told surgery wasn't a option, I had to see a Urologist because of bladder issues the Urologist believes is coming from L5, I'm at a loss the answers I get from my Dr make no sense I've had back injections and wear a tens unit and I'm completely rendered with living with pain. How can this pain start now and do I have no options? Please Help I just want my life back!
