A quick recap - thrown from my horse 2 weeks ago, fractured L2-L5, CAT scan also showed spondo. I am wearing a brace and have several drugs none of which help the pain. The pain is excruciating and it travels down my left leg. I assume this is sciatica based on what I've read but I am getting worried. I can barely put any weight on my left leg and walking any normal distance is almost out of the question. I start PT for my back this coming Friday. If the pain continues like this I am not sure what I will do. I work FT, have a small farm to take care of and have a toddler. It is really problematic to be this debilitated. I know no one likes it and I am not alone but is there any chance something can be done to help the pain quickly, like a cortisone injection or something?
It is extremely painful and very depressing. Is this type of pain to be expected 2 weeks after injury?
Thanks for your feedback.
