Crushed L1 I need help!!!!!!!!!

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have osteopoosis, osteoarthritis, in my back and neck,  and osteopenia in my left hip. I picked a box up June 7, 21016 took 2 weeks to get exray, they found I had crushed L then another 6 weeks to get CT scan then almost 3 months to get a MRI. Here it is 12/16/2016 still in so much pain, had my 2nd epidural last Friday, about 4 days of tight mussels that puts me in bed, then relief 1st one was about 10 days. Any suggestions on what I can do?

    Crushed!!? and you were made to wait months! This is barbaric...I can not fathom this delay with such serious i jury.

    A crushed L1 vertebrae is not going to heal. Crushed vertebrae should mean surgical fusion for stability and protection of the spinal cord.

    I am so sorry for your suffering...I would find a different physician.

    Carol,

    This is so wrong...find someone to help you now, not tomorrow.

    Perhaps consider emergency.
