I am a 49 yrs old female, postmenopausal at the age of 26 (hysterectomy). I am diagnosised with a compression fracture at my bra line (T-4). This is very painful!!! Anyone know how long this will last, and what I can do to help with the pain besides vicodin pain pills?
Also, anyone had the new procedure that's out there where they use some type of material to fill in the fracture? Do you get instant results? Are there side effects? Does the procedure hurt? Are you confined to bed for awhile? Lastly, can it be done as an outpatient?
Thanks for your time,
