I've been on here b4 but my account was lost. I'm 19 had a compression fracture on my L2 9 months ago. I'm still in alot of pain and the pain meds really don't help much. I take naproxen and advil together. If im sitting for over 30 minutes my back is in alot of pain. Should i do surgery? My surgery would be a 1 level fusion from L1-L2. Would the pain go away? How long b4 i recover? Will i recover?
