Just found this site! I never could find anything about thoracic pain and information and it has its own forum here! I need some input on my situation. I had a T4 burst fracture from being rear-ended in a car accident on 2/2010. I had developed a thoracic kyphotic deformity from the fracture and had some scoliosis. I was fused from T2-T7 and a cage was put in for my damaged T4 and I had rods and screws holding it all together. It was discovered on the operating table that I had severe osteoporosis in my spine. I rehabbed and returned to work full time about 16 months later as a rural mail carrier for the USPS. Seventeen months later, I started having severe back pain. A new CT scan showed my T5 had a compression fracture and my hardware had failed and a fusion had come apart(T5-T6). I had revision surgery 2/2013 and am now fused T2-T8. Rehab this time has been considerably more difficult. I started my first round of therapy 3 weeks ago; it is going very slowly. I have a VERY stiff neck; very limited motion; my upper back is extremely tight and cannot be massaged. Massaging any of my trapezes muscles and around the spine causes me a lot of pain. I am having pain in my right arm whenever I reach; lift or basically use my arm. It is a deep aching heaviness all the way to my fingers. I am getting tingles going bi-laterally down my legs occasionally. I also get stabbing, lightening bolts of pain the more active I am. I was on Lyrica the first surgery and do not wish to be on it again. Does anyone have any advice or input on what is going on; if this is something that will get worse? I did not have any of this my first surgery. I am 10 months post-op and each week seems to have something new happening that is nerve related.It is causing me to get concerned. Also the pain i felt at the compression fracture site is still there. It manifests itself when I reach or lift something with my arms extended away from my body. I am concerned I have a non-union because of my osteoporosis. I'm unable to sleep like everyone else. Thanks for any responses or input.
