T11 fracture and pain

Started by Pearkes on 03/06/2010 5:51pm

New to the discussion group.
I have just been diagnosed with osteoporosis after a T11 compression fracture caused at the gym.
Been off work for 5 weeks and I cannot beleive how much pain I have after I have walked for a short while or tried to do some work. Will it always be this painful ? what kind of pain releif works best-I am spending a lot of time just sitting with a heat pad on my back.

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Hi, how are you feeling? Hope you are well now. What did the doctor do to you to treat T11 compression fracture? What do you have to do? How long did you suffer from this? My Dad is 79 years old and was diagnosed with T11 compression fracture. He was in pain and had to have surgery for that. Before the surgery, he was in pain, but he can walk freely. After surgery and it has been more than 2 months, he cannot walk or even stand up by himself. He can only move around the bed and do therapy. That's all. Is this very common? Do you feel stiffness on your legs or your body. My Dad also has ankylosis. May be this make him worst. Any suggestion welcome. Thanks.
