Hello I'm 23 I broke my back 11weeks ago my C7 & T9 were burst fractures..
I had a T7-T11 spinal fusion, 2rods, 8pins/screws.
The accident happened in Australia but I'm from the UK so I traveled home after my 6week check up, I was recieving great physio treatment in Australia. They even sent me home with a programme for the few weeks I was in the uk before returning to physio in uk to help me through. I've visited my Docs For them to refer me to physio here and an ortho - which is taking forever. So I'm just wondering any advice on self progress anyone has.?
Also, I can't not work I'm bored and need money, but am I pushing my body if I return now.? - this is some thing I know I need the docs to answer but has anyone returned to work this early and found it was okay.?
im a chef - I haven't gone into full chef mode.. No heavy lifting, no long hours just a 3hour shift here and there to keep me busy..
Do you think this is too much.? I am young and was progressing so well, I just feel so stuck without a physio therapist helping me through this and I just want some advice
I'm so depressed, no working, having to end my travels early and not getting the medical help I need are taking a toll it would be nice if someone just told me they knew where I was coming from and could actually give me hands on personal
