Active fracture in T7 after 15 months
Nov. 09 broke pelvis and compression fx of T7, when a horse fell on me. On crutches and back brace for 6 mon. Told Dr. about pain in back, prescribed more pills, had an x-ray which he said saw something and ordered CT scan, now have kyphosis from the impact, but nothing else said except reffered me to Chiro, which was very painfull. I saw ortho again and asked if injections would help, he then referred me to specialist because he doesn't do Thorasic. Now the specialist does an x-ray and says it it still fractured due to where it sits with the Kyphosis. Said it's to late to due anything and if referred much earlier could have fixed with suregery. I will go in next week , be put under sedation and have my back injected to help with the pain. I have kids and would like to lead an active lifestyle, is there anything else that can be done?
