So not sure if this is the right place to post this but here goes.
I am late twenties guy from the UK, managed to get a L1 burst fracture about a month ago (early June) in a falling accident. I don't think there was / is any nerve damage since I can pretty much move everything as I could before, plus I am not getting numbness or tingling or anything like that.
Basically I had a MRI scan when I arrived in the emergency room a month ago, and diagnosis of L1 burst fracture - retropulsion into spinal canal. My fracture was 'stable' and I was discharged from the hospital 3 days later with a TLSO brace. Recovery time prognosis is 3-6 months.
Had a follow up appointment with a back specialist 2 weeks later where I was kind of given the ok, just need to wear the brace for a while etc etc etc.
Anyway my question is, my next scan for my back is a CT scan booked for early September, shouldn't there be like monthly check ups that my back is healing okay. There is like a 3 month period between when I had my first and only MRI scan (ER), and then 3 months later when I have the CT scan, but nothing in between. Shouldn't there be a scan in between those 3 months check that it's healing okay?
