Re: Stress Fracture/Fracture in the L1 Pedicle
Hi please excuse me i could only read part of your problem but the thing that jumped out at me was the L1 Fracture. My Daughter is 13 and in Oct of 08 she also fractured her L1 & T12 vertibre, like your Daughter she did it during a PE lesson in school where she landed on the floor from a horse box during gymnastics. She was taken to our local Hospital and from there to a spinal unit where they kept her for two months on her back on a special bed that moves you from one side to another. After two months in Hospital she came home with a body brace on ( it was like a plaster cast ) which she had on for a further 6 weeks, we have been back to the Hospital for xrays and are going again on 28 April. At the moment she is doing really well except for some mild depresstion due to the fact she can`t do any sport ( she played hockey for the county and net ball ) from what i can make out the prognosis is good , she should be back on form in a couple of years but to a teenager that is a very long time. What i was wondering is has your Daughter had MRI`s and CT scans? like i said i could only read part of your thread. Best wishes to you both.
