Hi This is Sachin,

Got my L1 verbetra compressed and fractured during road trip. Got Pedicle screw fixation done. It as 80% damaged however with no neaurological symptems. Finally I am able to walk and perform routine activities expect bending, sitting down and picking weight as directed by Doctor.

However my real concern is how far I had to take precautions? Its been almost 2.5 months I got operated. Are these life time precautions?

Can I travel in bus overnight.

I had still not joined office as roads in delhi(India) are quite bumpy. Is it the right time to join office as travelling is for 1.5 hours minimum from one side.

I still feel the pinch when the road is not smooth.

My Vitamin D was very low as got complete body checkup done.

Kindly suggest.


It would be very helpful if you could provide us with more details. Here are some questions that you
should answer:
  • - When did this first start?- Was it the result of an accident or trauma?- What doctors have you seen?- What Conservative treatments have you had? Which ones?- What diagnostic tests have you had? And their results- What medications are you currently using?- Has surgery been discussed as an option?- What is your doctor’s action plan for treating you?
Providing answers to questions like this will give the member community here a better understanding
of your situation and make it easier to respond.
