Hi, I am new to forums,
I was in a car crash about 65mph I was sat in the back of the car, I suffered very bad whiplash and a t12 compression fracture in my back, the hospital original said two fractures and then said it’s 1. No surgery was required. This happened in Feb 2018 and I had extreme pain, medication and had a back brace for around 3 months. It is now 9 months later, I have been told the fracture has heeled but am still getting a lot of pain,
I have just now got to a point where I thought I can go back to work I started about 5 days ago, the first day was horrendous I was in agony by the end of the day,
I have since reduced to half days which is 4 hours, this I can just about manage but still suffer quite bad with pain specially an hour or so into the shift.
I would really like to know if anyone has had a similar injury and is still suffering from it, the doctors have said it is heeled and they don’t have a reason or an answer why I am still having so much pain, the situation is really getting me down and obviously limiting my activities.
Is this something that will actually go away in time or am I just going to be stuck like this now ?
If you have been through something like this please let me know as I am really stuck for knowing what is going on with me.
I will also add that they did say there was no damage to the discs or the spinal cord, the pain is worsened by activity too.
