    HELP Kyphoplasty & Vertbroplasty

    Hello All. I really need to hear from anyone, who has HAD this procedure of Kyphoplasty and/or Vertbroplasty. I do not know much about this, and have been trying to find out info for my brother in law. He has compression fractures in his back, and this has been suggested. Hoping to hear from someone who has been through this, and can tell me how this is done, and if this has helped you in anyway. I know we are all different, but trying to gather as much info as possible. Also, after this procedure, do you feel better right away, and has it helped you? Is this a painful procedure? I have read about how they put you out, and then proceed, but sure would like to hear from people who have had this done... Would you tell others this is a good thing? Any information on this would be a help. Thank you all so very much. Waiting to hear.... Janatee
