| | help! compression fractures T9-10-11
I had an atv accident on Jan 17, 05. I went to the ER, had x-rays taken, and was told I had a minor compression of T10. I was given some pain meds but no brace and sent on my way. One week later, I had a MRI an found out about the others T9 and T11. I also have three buldging/protruding discs in this same area. The only instruction I got from my GP was try not to lift anything over 20 lbs. I am being put in a brace of some sort and seeing a neurosurgeon next week but thanks to the wonderful world of hmo's, It will be four weeks after the accident. What types of questions should I ask the specialist and do you think it's too late to avoid a bad heal?
